This spiritual reflection is from Advent 2018 Daily Reflections by Carmelite Sisters of the most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles. It references Luke 1:67-70.
“O Radiant Dawn, Splendor of eternal light, the sun of justice: come and shine on those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death.” The last of the great O Antiphons of Advent brings together all the longings of our hearts during this season of preparation. We have journeyed in quiet expectation, wonder, and joy with the Holy Family as they prepare for the miracle of mercy which we await.”
St. Paul reminds us, “How can they hear about him unless someone tells them?” This is our hope and our Advent mission – to bring the joyous news to those still struggling in the “darkness and shadow of death” of the radiant light of the newborn Savior. We are now armed with the light of the Radiant Dawn!
Through moments of prayer, quiet reflection on His word, and attentive listening we have readied ourselves this Advent season to greet the Dawn from on high and then share Him with all we meet. In these last moments before His coming, let us say our “yes” and strengthened in spirit go and await the miracle of Dawn.
