During this time of waiting, Bishop Robert Barron suggests we spend time with Jesus before the Blessed Sacrament:
"To spend a half hour or an hour in the presence of the Lord is not to accomplish or achieve very much—it is not really "getting" anywhere—but it is a particularly rich form of spiritual waiting.
As you keep vigil before the Blessed Sacrament, bring to Christ some problem or dilemma that you have been fretting over, and then say: "Lord, I’m waiting for you to solve this, to show me the way out, the way forward. I’ve been running, planning, worrying, but now I’m going to let you work." Then, throughout Advent, watch attentively for signs.
Also, when you pray before the Eucharist, allow your desire for the things of God to intensify; allow your heart and soul to expand. Pray, "Lord, make me ready to receive the gifts you want to give," or even, "Lord Jesus, surprise me." "
As you are waiting to be surprised by Jesus, why not check out some happenings around Albuquerque this week, and ways to stay attentive in this season we are called to wait for the Lord.
Blessed Advent Journey!

In his 1991 letter Centesimus Annus, St. John Paul reminded us that: more than ever, work is work with others and work for others. It is a matter of doing something for someone else. Jesus learned to work from St. Joseph and we would do well to ask St. Joseph’s intercession for all workers and those seeking employment. St. Joseph, help us to imitate Jesus as we work for the good of all. Amen.
