Wednesday of Hope – Humor and Perspective

The only thing I can recommend at this stage is a sense of humor, an ability to see things in their ridiculous and absurd dimensions, to laugh at others and at ourselves, a sense of irony regarding everything that calls out for parody in this world. In other words, I can only recommend perspective and distance.

Today is the First Sunday of Advent

Our Advent Journey begins with the Gospel reading from Mark 13:33-37

We all live in the shadow of both beauty and disaster. How attentive is our watching?

We all live in the shadow of both beauty and disaster. How attentive is our watching?

Jesus said to his disciples:”Be watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time will come. It is like a man traveling abroad. He leaves home and places his servants in charge,  each with his own work, and orders the gatekeeper to be on the watch. Watch, therefore; you do not know when the Lord of the house is coming, whether in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning. May he not come suddenly and find you sleeping.

What I say to you, I say to all: ‘Watch!'”

Clap Along If You Feel like a Room without a Roof

People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.
