The Last Day . . .

. . . of the Church's Year today. It looks like being a wet and blustery day, with darkness falling early. That seems very appropriate. Advent takes us into deeper and deeper darkness until Christmas comes, with its explosion of midwinter brilliance. And throughout, we shall have those hauntingly beautiful chants that express Israel's longing for the Messiah. Advent this year is short. We must make the most of it. (Our podcast will go up tomorrow — we have not yet solved problems with the feed which began when we updated some software. Oh dear.)
