”Peace be with you that you may act as true children of God…in good standing with God, yourself and your neighbor.” -Mother Cabrini
The Advent Season seems to progress so quickly. Our lives are filled with all forms of activities during these weeks along with the determination to recall the liturgical theme of waiting and hoping – the reason for the season.
Recalling Mary and Joseph who were so busy planning their journey to register themselves according to the Roman mandate, may help us identify with the season. Mary, young and in her final days of pregnancy, and Joseph, feeling responsible for adequately planning a long, hard journey for his pregnant wife, encountered some of the very feelings and challenges we experience. As we live these weeks, we may discover the similarities of our lives and the life of the Holy Family and ask for the hope and trust they had as they lived each day fully.
All of us at Mother Cabrini Shrine pray that you and your loved ones enjoy the love, hope and peace of Emmanuel – God with us- always.
