Sentinels, the religious life

The Isaiah text, 4th day of the Christmas novena, was strange and strangely haunting. The sentinel, waiting for the dawn. Fabio Attard connected this with the consecrated life: we are sentinels, waiting for the dawn, the Dawn, the Daystar that is Christ, the Day of the Lord. We announce that Dawn, we are signposts to it, "eschatological signs." We are like people waiting for the bus: and when there are people waiting, it is reassuring, because very likely the bus will come.
