Reflection for Advent

How can you help?

Above all through prayer, trust in God, and observance of the holy rule!

But with trust alone and your hands stuck in your pockets you won’t get far! That puts God to the test.

You must do it like this.

Yes, everything depends on you!

You should be men and women of trust and prayer, applying all the way and means allowed.

These means are simply the means
to bring about God’s glory.
