#ADVENT : Open Doors, Open Hearts

On this 16th day of Advent (with Christmas less than 10 days away) we may be scrambling to squeeze in more than a tick or two in our prayer closets. But Advent is a time to open the doors of our hearts wider, to put a big “Welcome” wreath out for Jesus…

“Lord, let us place wreaths on the doors of our hearts, so that the Holy Spirit may enter in and take up lodging…”  Henri Nouwen

“Pray while you work and work while you pray… the duty of the moment is our strategic place. One day at a time. We have this day in which to open our hearts like doors, and take in everything that we can… Christ wants us to be an Icon of Himself, to be people of faith.”   Catherine Doherty

grace, peace & open doors, open hearts
