Advent is about looking backwards, in order to look forward. The Advent Antiphons are not accidental worship, but crafted, looking backwards in order to look forwards. Taking the first letter of each Antiphon, and reading backwards, we spell out ERO CRAS, or ‘Tomorrow, I come...’
As we make room for Jesus throughout Advent, Jesus prepares to come to us, to inhabit our lives, to live in the room we have made for him.
Tomorrow, he comes.
