A blessed advent season!

Be watchful!
"Let us walk in the light of the Lord" - Isaiah

While the super markets and department stores have already long displayed Christmas items and Christmas carols have perhaps been played several times already on the radio, we in Carmel have just lighted the first candle of our Advent wreath and only this afternoon have we put up the Advent house, with still one window open. We are still about to start the great adventure...

We are still about to plunge deeper into the mystery of this very rich season, together with Our Blessed Mother, in silent yet joyful expectation of the coming of Jesus in our heart, not only on Christmas day but each day and each moment of our life.
