Godzdogz was launched on the First Sunday of Advent 2006, so this weekend marks the beginning of our fourth year. We are no longer a pup, therefore, but a fully grown beast. It is to be hoped however that we have kept some of the playfulness of those early days. Our aim is not to bite but to bark in a way that is clear and identifiable. We hope too that we have been worthy of the loyalty and fidelity of the many people who visit us each week.

As usual we will be offering a daily reflection between now and Christmas, on the readings or feast of the day, on aspects of Advent and its celebration, and on the characters of Advent who play a role in the history of our salvation, sometimes without even being aware of it.

We wish you a blessed and joyful celebration of this beautiful season and we ask you to keep us in your prayers so that we may be ready to greet Our Lord when He comes.

You believe that the Son of God once came to us; you look for him to come again. May his coming bring you the light of his holiness and his blessing bring you freedom. Amen.
