Margaret Anna Fridays - Son of Justice

It's a tradition on this blog to share some words of wisdom and inspiration on Fridays from the founder of my religious community, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace.  Known in religion as Mother Francis Clare, Margaret Anna Cusack was a prolific writer in her day.  Here are some of her thoughts on Advent:

Jesus is coming as the Sun of justice.  Oh, let us beseech Him to ripen the fruits of grace in our souls: alas! perhaps the little plants of grace have hardly yet commenced to germinate.  But, beneath the rays of this powerful Sun, they will shoot forth and multiply rapidly. ~ M.F. Cusack, Mediations for Advent & Easter, 1866
