We are pleased to present ‘In The Waiting: A Xaverian Journey Through Advent.’
The ‘Fundamental Principles of the Xaverian Brothers’ advises us to “make God’s word our home.” Through a willingness to set aside time each day for daily prayer, meditation, and reflection, we open ourselves to God’s living word. I am once again pleased to provide these personal and heartfelt readings for your use as a vehicle for prayer during the Advent season. During Advent, we wait with patience and hope for God to move in our midst.
Throughout Advent we make a spiritual journey in which we pay close attention to God’s word made flesh: Jesus. It is never easy to wait on God, but when we do, we often find God’s hand in unexpected ways in the ordinary circumstances of our days. Prayer is a gift; our connection to a deeper appreciation for the many ways God’s grace leads us.
This year may your Advent journey give you hope, and help prepare you for the true meaning of Christmas. The Xaverian Brothers, our Associates, and our Partners in Mission pray that the coming of Jesus, our Prince of Peace, gives you peace. We wait with patience and hope for God to reveal his many gifts to us.
God bless you,
Brother Daniel Skala, C.F.X.
