Today, the Church launches a new liturgical year, with the season of Advent – four weeks of preparation for the celebration of a birth that changed the course of human history. The Advent season is designed to help us appreciate more fully the significance of Christ’s first coming among us, and to make more room for him in our hearts now, as we await his second coming. This is beautifully expressed in the following Advent prayer ‘Increase our longing for Christ our Saviour and give us the strength to grow in love, that the dawn of his coming may find us rejoicing in his presence and welcoming the light of his truth.’ Advent is a time to be reborn, to wake up from our slumber, and embrace the dawn of a new day.

Let us pray for the Pope, so that in the exercise of his mission, he may continue to accompany in the faith the flock entrusted to him by Jesus, always with the help of the Holy Spirit. ~ Pope Francis – November 2023
