He is still Emmanuel – God with us

This past Sunday was the fifth anniversary of my father’s death. And Facebook pleasantly (if not creepily) reminded me of this event. And as my father died from dementia, I was happy to see so many happy photographs of my dad. It reminds me that as we enter into these last few days before Advent, it is as if we are getting little reminders of the key events of the coming of Jesus. We will hear today’s gospel again on Sunday, for example. But it is also a reminder that God continually is coming into our lives. When are the moments you have felt so clearly God’s presence in your life?
