We all need something to look forward to. Often we find the energy to get through today because of something that’s on the horizon for tomorrow. Perhaps we’re looking forward to a special event, like the birth of a child, a birthday or anniversary celebration, a much-needed vacation, or a reunion with an old friend or family members. Maybe we are looking forward to attending a major sporting event or a concert or theater performance. Or maybe a special package we ordered is finally being delivered! Whatever the case may be, it is the hope and anticipation of something on the horizon that often fuels us in the present moment. Such is the season of Advent, that time in the Church’s liturgical calendar when we remind ourselves that, in Christ, we have a future! In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we explore the season of Advent and the importance of having something to which we can look forward.
