"Come, O Lord, come! I, too, wish to run to You with love,

but alas! my love is so limited, weak, and imperfect!

Make it strong and generous; enable me to overcome myself,  

so that I can give myself entirely to You."

 

Divine Intimacy- Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalene, O.C.D.

1/12

O Come, O Come,

Emmanuel!

"I wish to prepare for Your coming

with the burning desires of the prophets and the just

who in the Old Testament sighed after You,

the one Savior and Redeemer. . . . .

O Lord, send Him whom You are going to send. . . . .

As you have promised, come and deliver us!

I want to keep Advent in my soul, that is,

a continual longing and waiting for this great Mystery

wherein You, O Word, become flesh to show me

the abyss of Your redeeming, sanctifying mercy.

 

O sweetest Jesus, You come to me with Your infinite love

and the abundance of Your grace;

You desire to engulf my soul in torrents of mercy

and charity in order to draw it to You."

 As we await the coming of Our Lord - Emmanuelin this Advent Season,

May you and your family be filled with joy, peace,

and God’s abundant blessings!
