Advent - Season of Hope

How wondrous is your dawn, O Lord, that quiet moment before day bursts forth in radiant glory. Sunrise is but a precursor, a prelude before the glory of the full-blown day. Dawn is not day, but a glimmer of the beauty, promise and hope of the day to come.

How awesome is the dawn when birds break into song, like voices in the wilderness of our lives, giving us a glimpse of your heavenly chorus, a chorus filled with hope.

Dawn’s glory pales before you, Lord.

How awesome are you, Elijah! Whose glory is equal to yours?    Sirach 48:4
