So too, you also must be prepared,
for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.
– Matthew 27: 43
This is the first Sunday of advent and the preparation should begin. Most people in our American Culture believe that the preparation for Christmas begins with decorations and ends with presents on Christmas morning. The preparation Catholics should begin is by searching their hearts and souls for an opening for the coming of the Son of Man. We need to clean out our bad habits, anger, grudges, and selfish ways to prepare to accept the total gift of selfless love in our lives and learn to give it to others in the same way.
Today, begin to prepare your life for the coming of Jesus Christ.
