We awake to a new day, new month and are on the verge of a new Liturgical Year. The grace and mercy of the Lord are new each and every morning. So we arise with joy and thanksgiving to our God, who has brought us to this moment of renewed hope and peace. As we prepare for the Advent Season, may we strive to improve our spiritual lives through prayer (Lk. 21:36) and be ready to meet our Saviour. Lord Jesus, we thank You for Your love and mercy which are new every morning. May our lives be dedicated to Your glory. Amen.
