"O King of All Nations and Cornerstone of the Church, rey de todas las naciones y piedra de la iglesia, come and deepen our love for all your people. God promised a savior, a cornerstone, to people journeying through life long before Jesus was born. These journeys that appear to be driven by human need or a desire for a better life may be God's plan for the enrichment of humanity. These journeys are always journeys of hope, so as we journey through Advent, we are secure in the knowledge of Jesus, the cornerstone."
- Sr. Maria Larkin, OSB
