Fourth Week of Advent

The weeks of Advent are skipping away from us so swiftly. This weekend marks the Fourth Sunday of Advent Year A and we hear the Gospel proclaimed from Matthew 1:18 – 24.

The following reflection by Veronica Lawson RSM will enrich our prayer and preparation for the next week and the celebration of Christmas in coming days.

In this final week of Advent, with all its hurly burly, we are invited to make some time to be with others and with God-with-us in our own lives and in all of creation. How might you ensure this? How might you encourage others by your gift of listening attentively?
