Advent and the Joy of Expectation: In the readings this Advent from the Gospel of Luke we hear of Christ’s coming and our restoration. We encounter figures from salvation history with a yearning in their hearts for the coming of the Messiah. When they heard the message of John the Baptist, “they were fi lled with expectation.” We can see this in Elizabeth, Mary, Zechariah, even our other Old Covenant friends. During the mission, we’ll reflect on these figures and visit some of the locales in the Holy Land where their stories unfolded.
