Advent in and of itself as a liturgical season is not a time of penance but of joyful anticipation of the celebration of the birth of our Saviour. We prepare ourselves interiorly at Church and at home by prayer and reflection on the word of God. We prepare out homes with special decorations and family gatherings and traditions. It is hoped by the Holy Father and our Archbishop Prendergast that each of us will make preparations during the Year of Mercy to celebrate the love of God and his mercy in the sacrament of reconciliation, through works of mercy, and through spiritual exercises that not only help us to experience mercy but will make us ministers of God’s mercy as well. There is joy in heaven over one repentant sinner (Luke 15:7), imagine the Father’s joy over many, many more who acknowledge their need for God’s mercy and seek for it in the special year of grace and blessing.
