This month’s Talking Point

Come Emmanuel

 

Come Emmanuel:

Disperse our darkness with your light;

Dispel our insensitivity with your compassion;

Diffuse our selfishness with your justice.

 

Come Emmanuel:

God with us in the mystery of a humble birth.

God with us in the horror of the cross.

God with us in the explosiveness of the resurrection.

 

Come Emmanuel:

Come, forgive our insensitivity;

Come, heal our divisions;

Come, plant seeds of love.

 

Come Emmanuel:

Come to our world;

Come to our Church;

Keep on coming into our lives;

To change and transform and renew.

 

Keep on coming Emmanuel;

Today and always.

Advent  means ‘Coming’

Emmanuel means ‘God with us’

 

What do you believe is coming

when we celebrate Advent?
