ADVENT 1, Monday
Here begins a series of little snippets from the daily Mass through Advent. When I was an undergraduate in the dark days of December, facing deadlines and exams, the readings helped. So I recommend the whole text but for these emails…I will just put bits in. Best to you as the semester ends, as 2008 ends, and with great hope for peace for you and yours in 2009…
…they shall beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks;
One nation shall not raise the sword against another,
nor shall they train for war again.
O house of Jacob, come,
let us walk in the light of the LORD!
