- Angelus, December 1, 2013 Pope Francis
The whole of life is a journey. we are constantly moving forward, or at least, we hope we are moving forward. The liturgical year, which begins today, gives us a direction to follow. The scripture readings, which are repeated every three years help us to navigate our journey through life. Even though the readings are repeated, they speak to us in new ways. Each time the readings are proclaimed, we have grown, matured been shaped by experiences. This influences how we hear the Word of God. If we are attentive to the readings as they are proclaimed, and listen with heart and mind, we will discover new treasures in God’s word. Happy Advent. Happy journeying in faith.
