FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Joseph took Mary to his home’
Nelson Mandela recalled the moment when he realized he was free. It was when he arrived at his old home in Soweto, small, humble, but home. Home is where our story begins, where memories are created, and where we always belong. It’s the place where we grow up wanting to leave, and grow old yearning to return. In these final days of the Advent season we are drawn to home, to the people who made and shaped us, to what is deepest within. We come home in another sense at this time also, home to the centre of our history, home to a story that gives meaning to our journey. The story is Emmanuel. God is with us. There can be no greater story. Happy homecoming! Nollaig shona.
