Advent has . . . a Scent of Hope


Advent has a scent of hope

And a taste of deep joy on the horizon.

Advent is a time to appreciate solitude

The unique solitude that nourishes hope

Advent sows the seeds of confidence in the future

And offers the richness of patience

Advent has a happy feeling of anticipation

And traces the path that quietly reconnects us to our heart

Advent is a time to open the heart again

And a season to embrace the promise of joy

Advent is a time to reflect on joy

And cherish the fruits of hope

Advent is a time to pause

A moment to prepare

Advent is a time to be available for oneself

And re-energize the inner self.

Advent offers the gift of memories

And a chance to remember what was forgotten.

It is a time to be and a time to do.

Advent is a time of silence.

Dodzi (Jean-Antoine Amemado) searches after truth in everyday life and values the Ignatian spirituality. He works at the Privy Council Office in Ottawa, and is also a University Scholar.
