Joy in the Waiting | Third Week of Advent (Year A) (feat. Sr. Josephine Garrett)

Waiting is difficult. Waiting is something no one likes doing. By seeking to understand what it is about waiting we dislike, Sr. Josephine shows us how waiting can be something that we treasure. We can know joy, hope, and peace despite the “mess” of our lives and we can be confident that God is working even when we can’t see how.

Pray the “Litany of Waiting” that Sr. Josephine composed especially for this program and allow yourself to work through the fears surrounding waiting and offer them to God.
