Tuesday of the First Week of Advent

A Surge of the Heart

(Feast of St. Andrew, Apostle)

What is your waiting like today? Are you able to bask in the wide-open space of your heart, or is your monkey mind filling that space with worries and To Do lists and memories that pop up out of nowhere? Wherever you are today, know this: it’s all perfectly normal. In fact, it’s better than “normal,” because you have made the concerted effort to try to be present, to wait even when waiting is a challenge. As soon as we turn our hearts to God, even if we’re distracted or tired, we have already begun to pray. St. Thérèse of Lisieux said: “Prayer is a surge of the heart, it is a simple look turned toward heaven…” Today, even if you can do nothing else, turn your heart toward heaven.
