Today marks the 3rd Sunday of Advent. In my Advent calendar, quotes reflect an angel communicating to Mary that she is expecting a son. The angel also visits Joseph to appease him, that the joyous event of Christ’s birth is coming.
This continues a time of deep reflection, yet there is a glimmer of excitement in the air. The gift of Jesus Christ’s birth is approaching, and we must keep that thread of excitement in the air as we wait.
