Of course, as Christians we wait in joyful hope the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. So, I think these words of Pope Benedict are complemented very nicely by our reading for Evening Prayer this First Monday of Advent, taken from St. Paul's Letter to the Philippians: "We eagerly await the coming of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. He will give a new form to this lowly body of ours and remake it according to the pattern of his glorified body, by his power to subject everything to himself" (3:20b-21).
The way subjects everything to himself, that is, his power is nothing other than love. He is the love of God made manifest to us and for us.
