Nailbiting Time

It’s Advent, perhaps the most spiritual and most nervewracking season of the year!

Anticipation of celebration, and anticipation of death and the end of the world, are linked together. You are commanded to declutter your worldview and straighten up your ways. At the exact same time, you’re doing that physically, both in your house and at work.

But beyond the busy labor and the panicked realization that you’ve forgotten to do some important stuff, there is peace and a new beginning.

Via the Anchoress, Msgr. Charles Pope gives a nice thorough scriptural reflection on Advent readiness.
