Emmanuel: 'God-with-us'

All this season of Advent, we sang "O come, o come, Emmanuel" to the haunting plainsong tune of Hymn 56. The tune has a slight pleading tone to it, even as we wait with eager longing for signs of our God-with-us, Emmanuel. A meditation I read this Advent suggested that when we feel overwhelmed with the problems of the world and the struggles of those we love that we might say the words at the beginning of Evensong: "O God, make speed to save us; o Lord, make haste to help us." God-with-us responds with his presence among us. -- Madre Liz

God loves you. No exceptions!
