The clock starts ticking for Christmas… now.

Advent offers us a sacred time to reflect, several times daily if we wish, on how consciously we are living. To be truly in the present means to wait, to be real and to know with the wisdom arising in stillness that what we are waiting for has already arrived. This kind of waiting is real hope – not the usual compound of daydreams and desires – but the core certainty that the final outcome has already happened and is waiting to be born in time and circumstances. Advent is about waiting for love. But as Rumi said, ‘lovers don’t just finally meet somewhere. They are in each other all along.’

Daily Lent Reflections by Laurence Freeman OSB

Daily Lent Reflections by Laurence Freeman OSB

In his Daily Reflections this year Laurence Freeman again accompanies us with a blend of wisdom and humour through this season. He helps to sustain Lent as a time of new spiritual and personal growth. Among his themes this year he will explore how we discover more of the wonderful depth of life by perceiving more dimensions of reality.

His vision again brings us the gospel teaching as a living word to lighten and enlighten our daily experience. It weaves together the different elements of life so we can see our daily challenges in the light of the big mysteries.

In previous years – as with his Lenten book Sensing God – these Reflections can help develop and deepen the daily practice of meditation.
