Advent 1 – Cast off the works of darkness
In the daily grind, it can become easy to become listless and unfocused in the Christian life. The sin of “acedia” tries to coax us to little acts of faithlessness, however St. Paul calls us to watchfulness and to cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light — the Lord Jesus Christ.
