3 Questions for Advent
In response to yesterday’s post on Advent and compassion, my nun Sister Rose Carmel shared a bit of wisdom that she had just received from a retreat with Fr. Helfrich. He had the retreatants ask themselves three questions for Advent.
- What have you given up on? (Not “What are you giving up?”)
- What are you looking forward to?
- What are you about? (The question asked three men hauling wheelbarrows. The first says “Can’t you see I’m hauling rocks?!” The second: “I’m earning food for my wife and children.” The third: “I’m building a cathedral.”)
Blessings on all for a fruitful Advent.
