Advent is about learning to wait. It is about not having to know exactly
what is coming tomorrow, only that whatever it is, it is of the essence
of sanctification for us. Every piece of it, some hard, some uplifting,
is sign of the work of God alive in us. We are becoming as we go. We
learn in Advent to stay in the present, knowing that only the present
well-lived can possibly lead us to the fullness of life.
