The World Waits….

The world waits..

Waiting in a soul reaching anticipation…
In the cool night air, the slight dampness settled and sky is cloudless…
Not a sound can be heard but the animals near by and hushed tones
The stars showing brightly.. particularly the guiding star showing brightest of all and coming to rest over a stable..

And the world waits..

Exausted from travel, frustrated from not finding a place to rest for the night,hearing the sound of their breath and finally findng a place in a stable.  ALthough its not perfect it is only for one night. Jospeh and Mary rest from their days labors.

And the world waits..

Suddenly, finally ,without fanfare, without robes or linen, without finery, but with total love, the Lord Jesus, King of the Universe, the Son of God, enters the world.
The world never to be the same.. True God and True man.. and then we hear nothing..

And the world waits..

The Lord goes through His ministry.. His teaching, His Passion and His Death..

And the world waits..

Then comes the Lord again, triumphant over death and sin, and shows the world again the lesson to be learned..
He reminds us of His Love and then ascends to Heaven and tells us of His return..

And the world waits…

Then every day in churches all over the world, the faithful gather, weary from their labors, their travels,
They come without fanfare, without linens or robes..
They come from the many, to become one.
Then with the same quiet and love, prayers are said, and the story begins again..
Again the Lord is made present, in the world, and is taken anew into the world to be shared through ministry.
We pray again….

And the world waits….
