Fourth Sunday in Advent

The Season of Advent is a time of waiting. The wait is nearly over. What have we been waiting for? We live as those who wait. We prepare to celebrate our Lord’s birth, even as countless people of God in the Old Testament waited for Him to come as Savior. Like them, we wait for His return in glory. John the Baptist pointed people to Him, the “Lamb of God.” The Church continues to point people to Him, for He has taken away the sin of the world. That is truly the joy of Christmas, and why we have spent a period of time preparing and waiting.
