First Sunday of Advent
A new liturgical year!
Part of my spiritual preparation will include stepping back from current events stories. It's perfectly possible to remain aware of what is going on in the world without delving into every gruesome detail of every horrid thing going on. Prayer moves mountains; dwelling on things beyond my control creates despair.
However, I will still be online. I will be checking in on the blogs of busy wife/mother bloggers, to see how they are preparing for Christmas in ways both spiritual and material.
And. . . I've signed up for daily e-mail reflections from Fr. Robert Barron here.
