Rejoice in the Lord – Dec 02, 2022

In his latest newsletter, Cardinal Tobin reflects on Advent as a time of profound hope
My dear sisters and brothers in Christ,Advent is a time of longing and of profound hope. We long for justice, peace, and unity among all members of God’s family. We wait for the coming again of our Lord Jesus Christ, who heals us from all evil, and who forgives us from every sin—personal and institutional. Our Church begins again—a new year of grace—each Advent. What better time than now to implore the Holy Spirit of God, in the words of Pope Francis, “to initiate everyone—priests, religious and laity—into this ‘art of accompaniment’ which teaches us to remove our sandals before the sacred ground of the other (cf. Ex 3:5)” (Evangelii Gaudium, 169).
