Advent is the season of preparing to birth the Christ in our lives and in our world. It is a time to slow down, to pray: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel; it is a time to wait with patience for the reign of God. “It is while waiting for the coming of the reign of God, Advent after Advent, that we come to realize that its coming depends on us.” (From The Liturgical Year by Joan Chittister, OSB)
Reflect on the meaning of Advent with the Benedictine Sisters of Erie. O Come, O Come, Emmanuel features the sisters’ handbell choir under the direction of Sister Marilyn Schauble.
