“Waiting patiently in expectation is the foundation of the spiritual life.”
Why do you think this is so? How is the spiritual life demonstrated in the excerpt from A Woman Wrapped in Silence.” Note the phrase from today’s quote, “waiting patiently in expectation.” How does Mary demonstrate this in the excerpt? To what extent has my current Advent been marked by “patient expectation?” In addition to the coming of the Christ Child, is there something else for which I have been waiting? What is it? How can this “advent” be a time of spiritual growth for me as I wait?
