Advent reflection -- Dec. 11
This is today’s reflection from “How Far Is It to Bethlehem?” A Spiritual Guide for Advent 2010 by Sr. Carol Perry, S.U. for Marble Collegiate Church.
“Wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, ‘Where is the child who has been born the king of the Jews?’” Matthew 2:1-2
It is time to bring these incredible travelers into our prayer time. Their journey is a long one and so they must already be on the road, coming through the mists of distance into our Advent story. We will never know who they were, how many they were, what they left behind, what they carried along. All that will always be unknown. But each year they ride into our Advent story and we reflect.
Let us pray today for those whose journey seems long and for those seeking courage before they move into the unknown.
