Week One: Advent Family Toolkit
Hope is for those who feel the ache of the world. Hope is for those who agonize at human cruelty … Hope is for those whose souls can find no other balm …We are those who listen for the voice of angels on the wind; who stretch to see the first light of a new day on the horizon; who long for a new birth of grace in every human heart. We wait. We listen. We hope.
—David E. Butler, from Seasons of Hope: Readings for the Liturgical Year
