Sister Lisa Maurer – Come, Lord Jesus

Many of us are in an ideal place to celebrate Advent, but we don’t know it.   It can be tempting to think that, because we are struggling these days, we can’t enter into Advent without a big change in our mood or circumstances. Nothing could be further from the truth!

Advent is about letting God come to us.  We do the letting and God does the coming.  And, the whole mystery of our faith is that God is not reluctant to come us. God is willing to come to us just as we are and yet we are tempted to prepare for Advent by cleaning everything up first.  We try to fix everything ourselves.  We try to save ourselves before we invited God into our lives.  The season of Advent is given to us to help us realize we need to let God come to us.  We need to accept the saving love of our God.

God wants to come to us and so we open our hearts and pray – Come, Lord Jesus!
