Where there is yearning, there is hope

Dec 2, 2019

O come, o come, Emmanuel … God with us.

Yearning and Hope

As we look and listen to the world around us, darkness at times can be the most “visible” presence.  Our earth cries out, our migrating sisters and brothers cry out, families cry out: will something turn?  To what hope do we cling?  Yet even when the answers are not yet explicit, the questions themselves reveal a yearning for something different, and where there is yearning, there is hope.  Hope is a faithful seed within us that trusts that God remains involved.  It is not wishful thinking, but moves us to act, for if God remains involved, then so must I…and so must we.  

This Advent, may we hear our questions and listen to our yearnings, and even ask them questions: What is the source of hope motivating this yearning?  We may find ourselves pleading for his full coming: “O come, o come, Emmanuel…God with us.”
