At the conclusion of Year of Mercy, Pope Francis in his letter Misericordia et Misera (Mercy and Misery) reminded, "the Jubilee now ends and the Holy Door is closed. But the door of mercy of our heart continues to remain wide open." As we enter into the holy season of Advent, it is time to open our hearts wide. It is time of grace and hope letting Jesus come to us. Our call is to keep the door of our hearts wide open in order to welcome Him when he comes. When will He come, where will He meet us and how will He appear – no one knows! Ours is to stay awake and be prepared!
