We spend the final hours of Advent awaiting the fullness of time when God sends his Son as our Savior. The Church speaks to us saying: "Tomorrow you will see his glory." The Church also reminds us that God fulfills his promises of mercy to send a Savior whose Kingdom will have no end. The Savior will be of the royal lineage of King David, Son of the Virgin Mary and Son of God. We are invited to pass these last moments in union with Mary, who longs for Jesus "with love beyond all telling."
