What do Advent, Christmas, and the Holy Family all have in common? Mary, Mother of God. She gives us the standard and practice for holiness. We admire the standard, but do we stop to think about putting this into practice?
Letting Jesus incarnate Himself in our soul is the only way we can see the blessed dignity in others. He is the best gift we can give to our loved ones.

We have this opportunity of Advent to empty ourselves, to be fully ordered towards Him. To be aware, ready to fully embrace Him, and enjoy a profoundly-changed life that only Jesus can give.
All of creation awaits its Savior…but this?? 😊
