For you, O Lord, my soul in stillness waits.
Truly, my hope is in you.
Based on the first verse of Psalm 63

Blessed Advent! I find myself today... on this gloomy, rainy December evening, entering into the season of Advent... and praying about what it means to prepare for the coming of Christ.

Last evening at 6pm our community entered into the Advent season with a prayer service - reflecting on Mary's disposition of waiting, pondering the coming of the Jesus. We prayed with today's readings about being awake and prepared... about creating a peaceful world where people would no longer train for war.

And what am I doing to help prepare myself and the world around me for the birth of Jesus? How am I called to do this? In what way(s) am I not prepared for the birth of Jesus in my heart? How am I called to bear Christ into this troubled world? What witness am I called to give? Am I cooperating with what the Spirit is trying to do in our world?

Important questions. This is where my prayer has taken me today, this weekend, as I seek to sink deeply into the prayer of Advent. Other than that, I don't have much left to say, really.

Pray for peace in our world...
Many blessings to all who read this!

Sr. Nicole,
Found your 'Life as a New Sister' blog while searching for the lyrics for Marty Hagens 'My Soul in Stillness Waits'----Oh happy chance!
I shall sing it in praise and thanksgiving for your profession and remember you and all Marianists in my prayers to our Holy Mother, this night.

Ps: Please remember the J. Paul II and Dorothy Day Catholic Worker Farm and Center for Social and Economic Justice in your prayers.

Your brother in Christ,
Steven H.
