“Preparing the way” means opening the door and letting God in to see us as we are. Not masked by new décor, not stuffing piles under the bed, not putting on the masks of being all put together. Invite God into the honest messiness of your heart. This Advent, hear the prophets’ call. The host, indeed the guest, of heaven is coming to us. God is coming, saying: I want all of you.
-Br. Luke Ditewig, SSJE
