During this Advent, with Mary, let us “form” Jesus within us.

This brings you Mother’s love, prayer and blessing,
together with my prayerful wishes for a fervent Advent spent in the company of Our Lady,
learning from her how to be pure and humble of heart.
Keep your eyes pure - so that Jesus may look through them.
Keep your tongue pure - so that Jesus may speak with your tongue.
Keep your hands pure so that Jesus may work with your hands.
Keep your mind pure so that Jesus may think His thoughts in your mind.
Keep your heart pure so that He may love with your heart.
Ask Jesus to live His own life in you.

Mother Teresa

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)

Be born in us, Incarnate Love!

Be born in us, Incarnate Love!
Be born in us, Incarnate Love; take our flesh
and blood and give us Your humanity; take our eyes
and give us Your vision; take our minds and give us
Your pure thought; take our feet and set them in Your
path; take our hands and fold them in Your prayers;
take our hearts and give them Your will to Love.

 



PART ONE
Advent

ADVENT is the season of the seed : Christ loved this symbol of the seed. The seed, He said, is the Word of God sown in the human heart. "The Kingdom of Heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed."

PART TWO
Et Homo Factus Est

HUMANLY speaking, the time of Advent must have been the happiest time in Our Lady's life. The world about her must have been informed with more than its habitual loveliness, for she was gathering it all to the making of her son...
