Yesterday, began the Second Week of Advent. One of the main themes of Advent is that of HOPE. The following is a reflection shared by Archbishop Eamon Martin.
“Perhaps this year more than ever – we need ideas and inspiration to help us delve deeper during our hours of isolation and restriction, to find that glimmer of light, that note of joy, that promise of consolation.
The season of Advent offers us a new beginning and a promise of hope for better times. The seasons of Advent and Christmas occur in the depth of winter reminding us that Christ was born to bring hope to a darkened world.”
It is fitting that during the season of Advent, we receive the encouraging news of COVID vaccines and the hope it brings for a gradual return to days pre-COVID.
For the time being, as the incidence of COVID continues to increase, we need more than ever a renewed diligence in adhering to COVID protocols and procedures. Thank you to everyone for your sustained and continued efforts as we work together to make our schools and buildings as safe as possible.
“The sun never quits shining. Sometimes, clouds just get in the way.”
