With the Season of Advent upon us, members of the Viatorian Community resumed their
tradition of meeting daily in the Province Center chapel for a time of prayer and reflection, as they prepare spiritually for the coming of Christ.
They are inspired by the words of Pope Francis, who encourages us to reflect on the contrast between our daily routine and the unexpected coming of the Lord.
Advent, he says, is “an invitation to vigilance, because, not knowing when He will come, we must always be ready to depart.”
During Advent, Pope Francis concludes, “we are called to enlarge the horizons of our hearts, to be surprised by the life that is presented each day with its newness. In order to do this we need to learn to not depend on our own securities, our own established plans, because the Lord comes in the hour which we don’t imagine.”
