Learning to wait

Advent is a time of waiting. Our whole life, however, is

Advent–that is, a time of waiting for the ultimate,

for the time when there will be a new heaven and a new earth,

when all people are brothers and sisters and one rejoices in the words of the angels:

“On earth peace to those on whom God’s favor rests.”

Learn to wait, because he has promised to come.

“I stand at the door…”

We however call to him: “Yes, come soon,

Lord Jesus!”
