November 27, 2016 Advent 1 - It's Time to Get Ready


Contemporary Reading from Hugh of St. Victor (1096-1141) - Brothers and sisters, it is now the season of Christ's coming,and we must use the time to prepare ourselves by some spiritual devotion...We must strive to enter the house of our hearts, open the windows, and notice what is seemly and what unseemly in that house.  We must brush away the cobwebs, sweep the floors, clean out the dust and dirt, strew the clean floors with freshly gathered rushes, fragrant herbs, and sweet-smelling flowers.

Isaiah 40:3-5
