When the king visited villages in ancient times, the citizens would work to level, clear, and smooth the way he would travel. Today, our king is preparing to visit us in our deepest depths. Advent signals the time for us to clear our hearts for his entry. Christ comes to transform us into other Christs aflame with his love. Specifically, this Advent calls us to plan carefully our Christmas transformation. Will I forgive? Whom will I serve, and how: my spouse, competitor, or co-worker? Especially, how will I overcome the injustice that ravages our society whether racial, gender, sexual persuasion,religious, or whatever? Our Lord approaches! Clear the road! Straighten the way! Fill the potholes! This Christmas will become my greatest, for the path to my heart will be clear.
