Last week I had the privilege of a few days away from CatholicTV to be quiet and pray a bit more than usual. On the feast of St. Lucy, the Office of Readings gave me words that never hit me in past years, words that now I will always remember...
St Ambrose wrote: "When you are in your room, then, at night, think always on Christ, and wait for his coming at every moment. Embrace him, the one you have sought; follow carefully the path God tells you to take, for he is swift in his passing. Whoever seeks Christ in this way, whoever prays to Christ in this way, is not abandoned by him; on the contrary, Christ comes again and again to visit such a person, for he is with us until the end of the world."
My retreat is over and I am back at my desk at CatholicTV. These unique days of Advent will pass quickly as well. We should take the advice of St. Ambrose to heart, at every moment waiting for His coming, always thinking on Christ.
As Christmas draws near, wait on the Lord and tune in for great Advent and Christmas specials right here on CatholicTV.
