Advent reflection -- Dec. 21
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.
“Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place.” Luke 2:15
There is an energy in this collective decision. We always come to Bethlehem because we have made a conscious decision to do so. And we come with others. This is a busy road where the solitary traveler merges with the others who are also going to see what has come to pass. Bethlehem has to be sought out. No one arrives there by accident.
Let us pray for seekers of every kind: those searching for faith, those on the quest for hope or companionship, those desiring a deeper relationship with God.
