Advent Antiphons: December 10th

Let us live justly and devoutly in this age, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of the glory of our great God.    Titus 2: 12-13

What is the age in which we are living exactly?   We are living in the age of the Son whose reign has already begun.  And yet, it is clear from looking around that the fullness of His reign is not yet here.  Hence: we are living in an age of waiting, an age in the middle.

We do not wait well.  Hence the reminder to live justly and devoutly, lest our impatience, frustrations, and weaknesses get the better of us.  A Christian is a devout waiter, known by his patience.  We wait without irritation, confident in the Advent of the One who has promised the wait will soon be over.
