It is true that the human heart opens to those who open their hearts in return. This is the embrace of being loved-to receive another as that person truly is, without qualifications or conditions. This is the miracle and mystery of Advent-to open the human heart and embrace the Lord, to know that our invitation has been accepted and is now achieved.

When we receive Christ in his word and in the Eucharist, let us remember this embrace of unconditional acceptance.

God’s grace opens our hearts to RECEIVE all he has prepared for us. Let us RECEIVE the Lord with joyful eagerness, and let him receive us.

Jesus, we RECEIVE you.
