With the First Sunday of Advent, we start a new liturgical year. Advent is a season of preparation and anticipation. On the surface, we often think of the Advent season as a time the Church uses to prepare us for Christmas; the birth of the Son of God, Jesus the Christ. Scripture tell us that this preparation goes much deeper than celebrating an event that happened 2000 years ago. Advent is more than us getting into the Christmas spirit. It prepares us for seeing and accepting God in our lives and knowing that our ultimate goal and destiny is eternal life in heaven.
