Advent 2019

“You know the time; it is the hour now for you to awake from sleep. For our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed; the night is advanced, the day is at hand. Let us then throw off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.” — Rom 13:11-14

Lead, Kindly Light
Divine calls in Scripture require instant obedience, and next call us we know not to what; call us on in the darkness. Faith alone can obey them. How does this concern us now? We were all called to serve God in infancy, before we could obey or disobey; we have been called to a state of salvation, through Holy Baptism, by the act of our parents. Calling is not a thing future with us, but a thing past.

Prayer: Sometimes I am afraid, dear Lord, when You lead me in darkness. Increase my little faith that I may ever trust in You.
