First day of Advent 2009

It is really hard to believe that Advent starts today, where has this year gone - it has just flown by! We are now in the waiting and preparation time for the arrival of Baby Jesus and the celebration of Christmas. As we begin the Advent journey lets us pray the words of Mother Therese:

Dear Jesus, help us to spread Your fragrance everywhere we go. Flood our souls with Your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly that our lives may only be a radiance of Yours. Shine through us, and be so in us that every soul we come in contact withmay feel Your presence in our soul. Let them look up and see no longer us, but only Jesus.Stay with us and then we shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others.
