Advent literally means “coming.” This coming refers to the first coming of Jesus as a baby in Nazareth, his coming into the hearts of faithful Christians throughout the ages and His final coming in glory at the end of the world. Advent is a time of joyful expectation. Jesus will come again—He will not forget his own. Advent is a season of fresh beginnings. In Isaiah we are given a message of hope and comfort. Today we are called to be heralds of the Good News. We announce to a hurting world that Jesus Christ has experienced the worst we face and has come through it.
