“God walks into your soul with silent step. God comes to you more than you go to Him. Never will his coming be what you expect, and yet never will it disappoint.”    Ven. Fulton Sheen

“The season of Advent, restores the horizon of hope, a hope which does not disappoint for it is founded on God’s Word."

Pope Francis
