O Sapientia (December 17) O Wisdom (Eccl 24: 5), you came forth from the mouth of the Most High (Sir 24: 30), and reaching from beginning to end, you ordered all things mightily and sweetly (Wis 8: 1). Come, and teach us the way of prudence (Isa 40: 14).Catholic Culture
We have a week left before Christmas Eve is here. Let us take a moment to collect ourselves:
Are we ready for the Baby Jesus' arrival? Or, have we lost sight of Him in the hustle and bustle in our preparation for Christmas? If the second one is our answer, then we should really consider pausing what we are doing.
We still have time to do the following:
1. Attend an Advent penance service or go to a priest for confession.
2. Learn more about the Church's ancient tradition of the O Antiphons. You can start by clicking the link to Catholic Culture above.
3. Light the Advent candles and do spiritual reading with your family or just sit still, and listen for God's gentle whisper.
