SEASON OF ADVENT
Advent is the period of preparation for the comprehensive coming of our Lord, who comes to us daily in mystery through the sacraments, who comes to us through his nativity, and who comes to us at death as a judge, says the Archbishop, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. He reminded us that at the end of this earthly journey, that we shall go back to God. He urged us not to be distracted by the pleasures of this passing world, which make us to forget the things of heaven that is eternal, but to use God’s gifts to us, in serving him well. The Church would always want us, through Advent, to be prepared and to be ready for the joys of heaven, that will last for ever. He prayed for all of us, to be prepared, that the blessings of God to be showering on each and everyone.
