Season of Advent

The season of Advent has come to mark the preparation for the coming of Christ – first in the Incarnation as the babe in Bethlehem and also in his second coming at the end of time. This is picked up in the themes of death and judgement.The readings in the Advent season give the Old Testament context for the Incarnation in terms of the Patriarchs and the Prophets and the New Testament figures of John the Baptist as one pointing to Christ, and Mary his mother.

‘And we thank You for your Son Himself will come again in the glory of his majesty… to say to all those who have known You and adored You and have served You in penance: ‘Come, you blessed of my Father, receive the kingdom, which has been prepared for you from the beginning of the world’.

(The Earlier Rule by St Francis)
