You went in at any time and began to watch wherever the film was up to. You stayed when it was over and then watched it again up to the point where you originally started to view. "This is where we came in" was a p h r a se often heard as people got up in the middle of a film and left. ates the presence of Christ. In other words, by the power of the Holy Spirit, the Church's worship makes Christ present here and now and makes his demands and challenges something that we have to respond to by a conscious T here's a danger that we can do the same thing with the Church's calendar and liturgy. We can think of it as a series of historic events that we simply commemorate on a twelve-monthly cycle. And so once more we're back at the beginning, singing our Advent hymns and songs again. B ut liturgy is not about the past unless that past links us to the present and readies us for our future destiny. Liturgy actu- decision to follow him or not. Liturgy is not historygazing but history-making. And the history it makes is ours. A lthough Jesus's words were originally addressed to a first century audience, when they are proclaimed at today's Eucharist they are aimed at us. For in the liturgy God continues to speak through the words of scripture, and when Jesus warns us to stay awake and ready for the coming of the Son of Man, he means now. A dvent offers us the chance to join the cycle again, but as if we have only just come in. There is nothing to reenact, only commitment to undertake. Rather than watching the film once more, where we know what the ending is, we open ourselves to the newness of God's daily call and we ratify our commitment to seek him in whatever circumstances his challenge will come to us during Advent and the coming year. So celebrating Advent is not trawling through history. It's yearning for our saviour's coming among us so much that we want to be ready to greet him. Our prayers and music are just the outward expression of inner longing: Come, Lord Jesus, come!
