Lord, On this first day of Advent, give me the grace to slow down.
Let me travel with the wise Kings, following the rising star and seeking advice as I travel.
Let me select gifts to bring that may be worthy of your saving birth and help me to encounter people along the Advent way, truly encounter them in a way that is meaningful and rooted in the Christian call.
As the journey begin Lord, I place its destination in your hands and truly pray with my entire being, that I may fall to my knees and praise your name. Amen.
From Fr.Vincent Sherlock ” Let Advent be Advent”
