As the Catholic Church begins its liturgical year with the 4 Sundays of Advent, what does this really mean for all of us?

Advent is a period of preparation for the birth of Christ. But more importantly, it is our time to prepare for the coming of Christ into our lives.

Let us all remember that more than shopping and gift-giving at Christmas, we should celebrate this season in cleansing ourselves and letting Jesus Christ in our hearts. It may be such a difficult task and a heavy responsibility to bear. But each on of us should start from somewhere.

Besides, when your time has come, it is only Him who can save you from inequities in your borrowed life.
