Advent – The Lord is coming

Lighting the Advent Candle at Westminster Cathedral, Vigil Mass November 30 2013

The Latin word Advent means coming. In Advent, we await the first coming of the Lord. It is a time of expectation and joyful anticipation. We prepare for Advent and look forward to the coming of Christ. And when He comes He will bring peace

Nation will not lift sword against nation,

there will be no more training for war,

O House of Jacob, come,

let us walk in the light of the Lord

-Isaiah 2:4-5
