Advent Theme of Reflection:"Hail, You are Full of Grace"

Advent begins with the cosmic angel’s arrival in Nazareth, “Hail, you are full of grace,” it acknowledges to Mary.  A momentous announcement!  As Sister Wendy Beckett says of a painting of a huge angel flying over distant fields, “The Angel is always in our skies.”

The message resounds across the globe: “You are full of grace.”  This is the wondrous mystery we want to ponder and absorb.

Despite all evidence to the contrary these days in our world, we hold divine light and life within us.  We lift up Advent’s gift of hope and vision for New Life.  Let us rejoice and be glad  as we open ourselves to the newness promised in this holy season.
