Advent reflections

The season of Advent is a great opportunity to stop and reflect on what is it is that keeps the hope alive in us, and indeed what is it we hope for.
It is also of course happens during the frantic business to the run up to Christmas when it can be hard to for many of us to take that moment to pause and reflect.

Terrorism Today and Advent

Terrorism Today and AdventThe Prophet Jeremiah foretold the coming of the Messiah six hundred years before it happened. This was after centuries of slavery, invasion and political instability. And even after his prophecy, the Jews were invaded, deported to Babylon, their Templedestroyed, and even when they got back to their own land they were invaded by the Romans. The promise of Jeremiah was to console them and give them hope down through all those hard times.

The language of the Gospel is apocalyptic: it speaks of the end of the world and thirty years after Jesus spoke these words, in many ways the world did end for the Jews as the Romans destroyed their Temple in Jerusalem.
