O God of Patience, draw us into the mystery of your love.
As a child, I often heard the admonition, "Practice makes perfect." It wasn't something I liked to hear because it meant that I needed to get diligent about something! As I grew older, I realized its wisdom. Whether one is an artist, a musician or an athlete, the life of discipline and continuous practice prepares one for the moment of fulfillment. It is as if the daily practice and the final performance become one and the same thing. And so with our practice of prayer. Advent, a time to be diligent!
