This Sunday, Nov. 27, is the first Sunday of Advent, signalling the beginning of a new liturgical year. And the approach of a new year is always an occasion to look back and reflect upon the events that have driven and the experiences that have flavored our lives for the past few months.
And Advent is falling at a perfect time this year: right after Thanksgiving, a holiday that calls for a remembrance and celebration of all our blessings.
So whether you are travelling to visit family or relatives or staying on campus to enjoy the company of friends, never cease to give thanks for your many blessings, not the least of which is our own vibrant community at the University of Dallas.
So happy travels, happy feasting and happy Thanksgiving!
