In Mother’s time, this was the feast of the Expectation of Mary

Try to imagine Our Lady seated on the donkey, and St. Joseph walking by her side. People pass by and take no notice, yet angels are with them, adoring their creator whom Mary bears. See them as they knock at the doors and are refused a lodging. 

And we? How often has he knocked at the door of our heart and waited for us to open generously? Often, we are only ready for the sacrifices we pick out for ourselves, and not for the ones God wants

Eight Day Retreat: Mother Magdalen

We pray for the gift of generosity of heart, so that we will open ourselves this Advent to the healing, welcoming love of the God who always comes.
