First Sunday of Advent

Liturgy of the Hours: Week I of the Psalter

We do not know when "the Son of Man' will
come again or how God's kingdom will be
established--whether peaceably (Isaiah)
or by destruction (gospel). Yet the readings
and Advent call us to look forward to the
future with hope and expectation. Why?
Because Christ's Second Coming will bring
to completion God's work of salvation.
This hope undergirds our efforts in daily
life to "conduct ourselves properly" and to
"put on the Lord Jesus Christ" (second reading).
