Our Lady and Jesus icon - #Thought4Advent

14 December

Today's Thought for Advent comes from Jim McManus - the Director of Public Health in Hertfordshire. 

It's the feast day of St John of the Cross, a Carmelite friar and a priest known for his poetry and writings. He's also one of the Doctors of the Catholic Church.

Jim encourages us to look to the saint and follow his example this Advent of waiting in expectant readiness for Christ.
