What does it mean to be strong? It can refer to physical strength, such as the result of manual labor or weight lifting. It can mean an inner strength, such as what can be experienced when people are able to do wonderful things in the face of tragedy. But the type of strength we experience today in the readings is the strength that comes from God, which provides a spiritual strength which may not always seem evident. Advent is a time to touch base with this type of strength.
