Every month here at CatholicTV we are excited to share our thoughts and any new developments at the station with our viewers. We actually mail the magazine, free of charge. This week, the December CatholicTV Monthly will be arriving in mailboxes and the coverstory is: "The Joy of Waiting: Advent Hope".
It seems to me that the older you get, the more time is spent in remembering. What a wonderful gift God has given us in our memories! How terribly sad it is when someone we love loses the ability to remember because of a debilitating disease like Alzheimer’s or dementia. Our recollection of the good things that have happened to us, as well as the bad, these memories make up the fabric of who we are as unique individuals; and there remains in each one of us a youthful anticipation.
Some would say that the coming Advent Days are the most exciting of the whole Church calendar. These will be days filled with the images of light and darkness, of joyful anticipation ofthe nearness of our God. There is no taking Jesus Christ out of Christmas, for we know deepwithin us that He is the reason for this holy season. We long for Him as for life itself. Although we forget, in our hearts we know that Jesus is our only hope, the light of our lives and our world.
