November 28: Blessings on the 1st Sunday of Advent from the Virtual Abbey

And do this,
understanding the present time.

The hour has come
for you to wake up from your slumber,
because our salvation
is nearer now
than when we first believed.

(Matthew 24:11)

Isn't it ironic that at this time of year when many animals sleep (hibernate), we are called to be awake?
