Each day of the year, as we say the opening prayer of Morning Prayer, we echo these words from the Letter to the Romans: ‘The night has passed, and the day lies open before us; let us pray with one heart and mind.’ It is a wonderful way to begin the day.
This Advent, as we reflect on the coming of our Lord, let us look for a new way of living that will help us welcome the day, and make the best use of it.
