Advent gives a special meaning to all that we are waiting for: presents under a tree, Christmas cookies on a plate, festive gatherings of family and friends—and, of course, the celebration of the birth of Jesus. And we Christians are waiting for the return of Christ at the end of time when his kingdom will be fully revealed. This little booklet of reflection and prayer reminds us that the Lord reveals himself every day, in the love we have for one another, in our hearts at prayer and in the words of Scripture. And there’s no need to wait for that. Daily prayer in Advent helps us wait in hope while we respond to our Savior’s presence among us right now—in Scripture, in the love we bear toward one another, in the Church and in the poor and needy.
