A little disappointed today. We headed out for church in Ottawa today (St. Barnabas) and since it was snowing we got stuck behind a snowplow. We ended up being so late for church we didn't go.
This is the Fourth Sunday of Advent and we light the Angel's candle. This week we are reminded of the Angel's. First there was the Angel that greeted Mary with 'Hail Mary, full of grace' and was answered with 'be it unto me'. How frightened Mary must have been? And that leads to the second visitation, with Joseph. ‘Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife’ (Mt 1:20).
Then we remember the Angels that proclaimed the birth of Jesus so many years ago. We are in the final preparations for the coming of our Lord.
