ADVENT CALENDAR

Be born in us, Incarnate Love!

ADVENT is the season of the seed:

...the seed of the world's life, was hidden in Our Lady. Like the wheat seed in the earth, the seed of the Bread of Life was in her.

Advent is the season of the secret, the secret of the growth of Christ, of Divine Love growing in silence. (by Caryll Houselander - THE REED OF GOD)

"[Jesus] wants to live His life in [you], to look through [your] eyes, walk with [your] feet, love with [your] heart." Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
