 Advent Reflections from Our Convent in Bellevue 

First Week of Advent

Sister Jeanette Bussen lights first Advent candle. Today, amid such darkness, we need to see the light of hope and to be men and women who bring hope to others. ~ Pope Francis

And so we begin Advent time and the season of Christmas, each holding the beauty of longing. In this rich and steady time of anticipation, our world seeks light and hope. The time is short and days are too few, yet Yahweh assures a waiting community that “the days are coming when I will fulfill the promise I made.” This season calls you to make ready your heart to receive God’s word.  In the midst of Christmas preparations, be attentive to signs of hope around you that you might bring hope and the light of Christ to a world so desperately in need of them today. 

Reflect on the times of longing and hope that you have experienced. Where do you find hope and the light of Christ around you?

Emmanuel, God-With-Us, give me the grace to be a light of hope in our world. 

- Sister Jeanette Bussen
