The day nears...and is here
"Sound the trumpet in Zion; the day of the Lord is near; he comes to save us, alleluia" (Advent Antiphon 1, Week IV of the Psalter). Sine dominico non possumus= We cannot live without Sunday because Jesus comes to us each Sunday, in our gathering, in the reading and hearing of God's word, and in the bread and wine. Only he can and will right every wrong for he is "Strong God" and "Ruler of all" (Advent Antiphon 2, Week IV of the Psalter). So, joy, light, and peace to all on this, the final Sunday of this Advent, as we continue our waiting in joyful hope, together.
