A new liturgical year is upon us.  We are now in the Advent season.  One of the things I love about this time of our liturgical year is the tradition of the Advent wreath.  This year what has struck me about this the first candle of the Advent wreath.  The first candle of the wreath is a symbol of hope.  This symbol means that each new liturgical year begins with the light of hope. Hope which guides us through the year.  Today, I reflect upon this act of hope that starts our new liturgical year in the Church.
