Advent reflection -- Dec. 22
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.
“Go and search diligently for the child.” Matthew 2:8
While Herod is in no sense a prophet, these words do reflect our own journeys. We too are searching diligently. God does desire to be born in odd places. But at the end of the search, we will find in proportion to our longing. As we come closer to Christmas Day we need to renew our spiritual desires.
Let us pray for those growing tired of the search, for those turning away from the goal.
