The living Spirit
To me, Advent is the season of the poor. Poverty has not been created by God. We are the ones who have created poverty.
The Spirit prays in us. Of course we pray as well. We say our words and, when we use the psalms, we say the ancient hallowed words which have been lovingly passed down.
I continue to go to Church because I need to: being too weak without the help of others to follow the gospel imperatives that have guided my life for so long and have helped me to live a full and satisfying human life, even though I often betray them.
I did not come to be served, but to serve, says the Lord. Let those who are placed over others boast about that position as much as they would if they were assigned the duty of washing the feet of their brothers.
