Advent Day 4 What’s it all mean anyways?

“Advent Matters because Jesus Christ is a savior, not just a teacher… Advent is a time when we get deeply in touch with our need for a savior.” Fr. Robert Barron

If ever the world needed saving its right about now. We (the world) need to get into a 12 step program but that would require us admitting we have a problem that is beyond our control and requires us to surrender to a power greater than ourselves. Umm, and just who or what is greater than these United States of America? We (USA) don’t have problems, we solve problems, that’s what we do, we’re good at it, or so we like to think. Our backyard is full of junk, waste, our children are running amuck, our parents are absent, helicoptering, engaged, enraged, etc but don’t worry about that, let me (USA) tell you about your backyard. As for me (USA) I’m doing fine (freaked out, insecure, neurotic, emotional). Yep, we are jusssttt fine.
