As shared above, our Province has chosen a theme to accompany us during the Advent season.  The theme, “O Word of God, Come” is taken from a song by Ricky Manalo a Paulist priest, entitled, “Word of God.”  The refrain contains the following words:

O word of God, come into this space,

O word of God come send us your grace

Open our minds; show us your truth

Transform our lives anew 

This theme invites us to reflect upon

The Word – both as Jesus and the message in Scripture that continues to speak to us and our world today

Making space – for the Word to find a home within us and in our daily lives, words and actions

Being attentive to God’s truth – and exploring the deeper meaning of truth in our lives

Transformation – relying upon God’s grace to continuously become more deeply the person whom God has created.

We hope this can become a prayer during your Advent season as well.
