Margaret Anna Fridays - Christmas Eve Eve edition

Most Fridays, I’m going to share a quote from the founder of my groovy sisters, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare.  Today's installment:

Oh, how blessedly near is His advent! Today we are decking our houses for His divine visit; let us not forget to deck our hearts.  Let us sweep out every imperfection, every imperfect disposition, every wandering thought, with the besom of penance, and adorn ourselves with the fair bright flowers of contrition and love. To-morrow our Infant King will come.  Are we prepared to receive Him? Have we all teh love ready for him we should like to offer him? M.F. Cusack,Meditations for Advent & Easter, 1866
