"As we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ"

Over on our parish blog, The People of St. Mary Magdalene, I have been marking this season of Advent, which always seems to catch me a bit flat-footed, unlike Lent for which I prepare. Anyway, here are some Advent posts written to assist you in your reflections during this beautiful and overlooked season of hope:

Advent: The recognition of the world's renovation

Third Sunday of Advent: Gaudete Sunday



Writing about this season of hope, I know that I promised more on the Holy Father's encyclical Spe Salvi, but I could not improve on Fr. Gerald O'Collins, S.J.'s article in America entitled Pope Benedict on Hope: Considering the pope's new encylical. Additionally, over on Cahiers, Fred has a reflection on the letter that is very much worth considering: The Heart of Spe Salvi as does Suzanne (thanks for the correction Fred) with More on Spe Salvi.

  1. Thanks!

    Actually, Suzanne wrote the post "More on Spe Salvi." The perils of a group blog: I just realized today that Alex posted the G. Keilor piece...

    And Fr. O'Collins must have overlooked the 3 direct references to the Holy Spirit... :)
