Advent and Pope Benedict

"This powerful liturgical season invites us to pause in silence to understand a presence... the individual events of the day are hints that God is giving us signs of the attention he has for each one of us. How often does God give us a glimpse of love!" Pope Benedict XVI. The loving Presence of the Lord, a Presence that is always coming to us in new ways. It is time to make room for Him in our schedules and in our hearts. When we do, we are never disappointed. The glimpses the Pope refers to make all the difference in life. Thanks to a special publication by the USCCB, we can journey through Advent with the Holy Father. For daily reflections throughout this season and next, check out Advent and Christmas with Pope Benedict XVI.
