Prepare the way...
As tomorrow we begin anew the holy season of Advent, we prepare for Christ's coming: preparing for the celebration of His historical coming into the world as Mary's child; preparing to receive Him again at His second coming at the end of time; and personal spiritual preparation for His coming under our roofs in the Holy Eucharist. We have been preparing for some time to welcome with joy the new translation of the Roman Missal, the prayers of which leave behind banality and pedestrian vocabulary and are composed in language rich in theology, expressive of scripture and beautiful in their poetic language - and thus fitting for divine worship. May we prepare for Christ's coming among us with joyful, dilligent and reverent recitation of these newly translated prayers, and so welcome Christ with due honor in our worship. What a Christmas it will be when we sing the new Gloria! Blessed Advent to all!
