From Fr. E.J. - - 

     Brothers and sisters, as we begin Advent, a season of active waiting, I am aware of a 2017 Timex (the wristwatch company) survey that illustrates how long a person in the United States waits on average: 20 minutes a day for the bus or train, 32 minutes whenever they visit a doctor, 28 minutes in security lines whenever they travel, 21 minutes for a significant other to get ready to go out, 13 hours annually waiting on hold for customer service, 38 hours annually waiting in traffic (50 hours in big cities). A human being spends about six months of their lives waiting in line for things. The average person spends about 43 days on hold with automated customer service in one lifetime. What about our cell phones? We spend 23 days a year on our phones. That’s about 90 minutes a day or nine years of the average persons lifetime. I, and I’ll bet you, have lived several of these statistics. I wonder how we are or what we do while we are waiting?

 

     Another experience almost everyone seems to have these last weeks of the calendar year is intensification of busyness. We no sooner finish one thing when we find ourselves immediately asking, Whats next?” Besides our normal busy lives, we also become concerned with Advent wreathes, Christmas trees, indoor and outdoor Christmas
decorations, Manger scenes, our kids being home from school, Christmas parties, Christmas shopping and gifts, when do we need to be at church, cookie baking, house cleaning for guests, travel plans of our own or those of visitors coming to see us, menu planning, and 
Whats next?”

    God invites us to consider answering, “Advent! Lets not forget about Advent! Advent is next!” The word advent” comes from the Latin word adventus” which means coming.” “So, whats coming up?” Better yet, Whos coming up?” For Christians, celebrating Advent helps to prepare our hearts, our spirits, for the celebration of two comings” of the Lord Jesus. The focus of Advent is on the first coming of Jesus at his birth. But just as importantly, the rituals of Advent season also remind us and assure us of His promise to return as Lord, as King, as Savior with all glory, honor and praise. In between these two comings, we are called upon to continue bringing Jesus to birth in our world by the conduct of our lives. Likewise, we are to live each day in the glorious expectation of Jesuss sec- ond advent” or coming. Yes, a lot of our lifetimes are spent in waiting for all kinds of things or people. God knows we all have more than enough busyness to deal with. Even with all this, as well as the chaotic and confused nature of our world right now, may Advent remind us to open our lives to the ways the Lord came to us, will come to us, and chooses to come to us now.  

Happy and fulfilling Advent to all! Fr. EJ
