Ave Maria Meditations
Adventus! A Latin word that means something along the lines of “the coming”. What coming would that be? The coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at Christmas!
Now in this time of Advent many people put up lights and decorate a tree in their house which is good and it lights up the darkness of these short days. But more importantly is to light up our souls with virtues such as repentance, humility, trust, self-giving and so forth.
Advent is actually a penitential season! Many may not know this. What can we do to prepare to put lights in our souls in preparation of the coming of the Christ Child? This is what will really prepare us for Christmas. Something to pray about. A good confession is a wonderful way to start!
