“Learning to Love the Mystery: A Benedictine Guide to Advent”

The birth of the Messiah is the key event in all human history, and yet God wanted it to take place so quietly that the world went about its business as if nothing had happened.  God chooses to wait for us.  And chooses to let us wait for him.  This Advent, learn to look past the frustrations of the present moment so as to enjoy the mystery of silent anticipation.
