Practice Yearning

The Common Rule

For Simeon, that advent of the Messiah is the very culmination of his life. This is all he has hoped for. He can now leave life in peace. Like Simeon, in Advent we we celebrate that God has come near to a people who were far. Like Simeon, in Advent, we practice yearning for this salvation to come. Meditate on what it would be like to yearn for this. Confess what you actually spend your life yearning for.
