Advice for Advent

                                              Carmelite Sisters chanting the Salve Regina

From the Carmelite Sisters' December newsletter (to subscribe click here):

"St. Gregory [the Great] . . . counsels on how to prepare for the coming of the Great Day of the Lord: "Reflect with all your mind upon this day, my dearest Brethren.  Remedy what is now defective in your present life. Amend your ways. Conquer evil temptations by standing firm against them.  Repent with tears of the sins you have committed.  For the more you make ready against the severity of His justice by serving Him in love and fear, the more serenely shall you behold the Coming of that Eternal Judge."

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.
