A time of wonder, daily reflections, and prayers for advent by Siobhan O'Keeffe invites us to ponder with childlike trust the beauty and mystery of the incarnation during the holy season. We are invited to ponder with childlike trust the beauty and mystery of the incarnation during the holy season of Advent. A gift is bestowed upon us that is much greater than anything available in the marketplace. We hear God's words of promise to us: "When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13). God wishes to renew our hearts, our churches, and our world. He desires that we are deeply in tune with what is really important and sacred in our lives--the presence of the holy. We are invited to savor this presence ever more deeply, to share the light of his grace with others, and to rejoice!
