A SHORT NOTE
Today is the first Sunday of the liturgical season of Advent. It is the season of anticipation of the birth of Christ, but also the reminder that Christ shall come again into the hearts of people
as well as into the world itself. We are surrounded in the church with reminders of the season. We have the Advent Wreath with a different candle for each week of the season and the Christmas Candle to be lit on Christmas Eve. There before us is the Christmas Tree adorned with symbols of Advent. And because green is the liturgical color of the season, there is greenery “hung” as an added reminder. May these symbols assist us in claimant the true meaning of the birth of Christ - it is not merely a holiday season - it is a very Holy season. A Savior has been born. Just what we need.
