A reflection on Advent from Abp. Nienstedt

In his most recent article for The Catholic Spirit Archbishop John Nienstedt reflects on, appropriately, Advent.  But as you might expect, he puts it in its broader context.

Advent and Christmas draw our focus to the mystery of the Incarnation, of God becoming man. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us: “Belief in the true Incar­na­tion of the Son of God is the distinctive sign of Chris­tian faith” (No. 461).

This is not meant to be an academic exercise, but rather a personal appropriation of the love that God demonstrates for us in this great mystery. And, there are many practical repercussions!

Read it – you’ll never consider the term “Because of Christmas” the same way again.
