When my children were small, anytime we had to travel more than an hour from home, the conversation in the car was peppered with the question, “How much longer until we get there?” Time is not easily explained to young children. And the notion of waiting for anything is lost on most. The preparations for Christmas, while exciting, bring forth from children (and all of us!) the longing for Christmas joy and the celebrations that accompany it.
Advent’s waiting season points out that our culture thrives on instant gratification. The four weeks of Sundays force us to slow the pace, savor the days and wait in patience for the gratifying presence of the Holy Child, who came to fill the world with Love.
