A Dominican Season

Readings for Today´╗┐

At the risk of irritating other religious orders, I think Advent is really a Dominican season. The readings today remind us of the spiritual cycle of a preacher. First, there is the attention to the presence of God in contemplation. We do not control what happens in contemplation, God does. I think this is why it is sometimes difficult. What do we do next? With whatever fruits God wishes to give us, we share those with others in our sacred preaching. Have a holy Advent.
