Waiting in Hope, Abandonment to Divine Providence

Each year, Advent seems to take on new meaning and this year is no exception.  It is hard for us to slow down, to be still before God in the midst of the busyness of our lives.  Yet, there is a quiet beauty in doing just that.  There is peace that comes with actively waiting on God and allowing Him to heal and transform us.  There is joy that comes when we look for His coming with a childlike (not childish) anticipation.  We are an advent people.

Fr. Brian Mullady, OP has written some beautiful reflections on the cloistered life, one of which I wanted to share with you now – “A Matter of Abandonment to Divine Providence” (http://www.cloisteredlife.com/a-matter-of-abandonment-to-divine-providence/).   

May you and yours be richly blessed this Advent season, through the hands of Our Blessed Mother.
