Our Lady of the New Advent

 

As we live the days of Advent we should think of Our Lady. Think of her carrying her Baby. Think of the Mother with Her Child. Think of the young Mother awaiting the Child’s birth. Think of the Visitation, the journey to Bethlehem. Think of good Saint Joseph. And surely, think of the cave, that wondrous cave and the kindly animals.

The liturgy of the Advent Season brings into prominence three great figures in Church history: Isaiah, Saint John the Baptist, and Our Blessed Lady.

Isaiah

John the Baptist

Blessed Virgin

It brings to mind the waiting for the promise of salvation which God had given through the prophets for many generations. On the first Christmas, the promise was fulfilled.

During the next four weeks, let us prepare with the same joy that must have been present almost 2000 years ago, as we celebrate the impending birth of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior.
