Newsletter December 1st 2019 (First Sunday of Advent)

Just a thought

What’s another year? was the name of a song that won the Eurovision Song Contest long ago! Today we start another liturgical new year, with the songs of Isaiah singing the praise of Advent. Our year of prayer will carry through to Christmas, then on to Jesus’ Public life, then Lent and Holy Week and the drama of Easter and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

Then our time moves towards next Advent, when another year of liturgical prayer begins. This rhythm and pattern can be a blessing for us, providing a spiritual framework of meaning for all the bits and pieces of daily living, during the different seasons. The liturgical year can help us keep our lives grateful and centred on God.
