What better time, than as we enter the Advent season, to pass along the joy of God-centred people, as Marie and Ginny describe here.
I would like to pass this on to the very dedicated people of the Madonna House apostolate. You will also find a link to their field houses in my sidebar.
To begin the Advent season, I share with you the words of Catherine Doherty:
“Advent is a time of standing still and yet making a pilgrimage. It is an inner pilgrimage, a pilgrimage in which we don’t use our feet. We stand still; yet in a manner of speaking, we walk a thousand miles across the world – just because we choose to stand still. So, then, let us enter, you and I, into the pilgrimage that doesn’t take us from home. For ours is a pilgrimage of the spirit, which is a thousand times harder than a journey of the feet. Let us arise and go.”
