St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

December 15

"Stay awake, praying at all times."  (Luke 21:36)

Jesus urges us to be in a heightened state of readiness because the day of the Lord comes suddenly and unexpectedly. In the season of Advent, and as we come to the end of another year, we are called to prepare our hearts for God's coming - in the birth of Jesus and at the end of time.

Lord, Help us to look beyond the frantic preparations for Christmas and to find time to reflect on your coming amongst us, that we may rejoice with the angels and give glory to you in our hearts. Amen.
