Let Us Begin Our Advent Season with this prayer and meditation

As the first Sunday of Advent approaches, I will give the Apostles’ Creed a break for a while and focus our hearts on “the reason for the season.” Fear not, He lives! and I promise a spectacular resurrection painting.

For now, I found this lovely little meditation this summer while traveling in England and I have been saving it for just this moment.

The Candle is a sign of our prayers and the offering of our lives in the service of Christ;
….of our prayers for others, that they too might be strengthened in their faith and love of our Lord;
….and a symbol of all those who through the ages, have shone as lights in the darkness of the world,
and of their prayers for us;

The Candle is a sign of our witness that this place of prayer; a place where people have knelt in worship through the centuries;
to acknowledge that the Child of Mary is also the Son of God.

“God, Our Father, source of eternal life, fill the hearts of all believers with the light of faith.” Amen

Prayer used in The Queen’s church, Sandringham England
