The season of Advent is really short, lasting only four weeks. The only liturgical season shorter is Christmas, which lasts twelve days. Today and this week we bring the season of Advent to a close, as this is the Fourth Sunday of Advent.
Advent teaches us something very important about God and our relationship with Him. Unlike every other religion, Jews and Christians teach that God comes to us. God created us. Others believe the same.
God loves us. Not all religions teach that God loves us.
More important is the fact that God comes to us. No other religion teaches that God comes to us. Advent. “Advenio”, “Advenir” in Latin. He comes. Our God comes to us. That is the most important lesson of the season of Advent.
