Advent, Week 4

As we enter the final week of Advent for 2015, we share with you a photograph taken by Sr. Jeanette Braun of the Sisters’ Advent Wreath in the chapel at the Province Center in Belmont, and a poem by Sr. Kay McMullen.

Province Center Chapel Advent Wreath

In Advent Time
by Sr. Kay McMullen, SND

I walked
in Advent time,
walked the old fire road
up the canyon
where winter sycamores
made white lace
with their bare branches
and oaks and red toyons
glistened with fog.
At the lake
a gray shadow
lifted its wings,
powerful heron wings over reed-still water,
wings that whispered,
“Peace on earth.
It will be —
peace on earth.”
