A Prayer for the Start of Advent

Advent begins on Sunday, November 30:

Your word is near, O Lord our God, Your grace is near.
Come to us then, with mildness and power. Do not let us be deaf to you, but make us receptive and open to Jesus Christ your Son, who will come to look for us and save us. Today and every day, for ever and ever. Amen.

(by Huub Oosterhuis, SJ)
