Dear Magdala Friends,

Advent has again arrived. It is a time of serene joy and grace.

The passing of time with the change of seasons, liturgical celebrations, and holidays teaches us both the value and the futility of time. We live in time and thus in some way always have it, but at the same time it always escapes us.

Advent is a time of waiting and preparing for new beginnings. The few weeks before Christmas are also the last few weeks of the year 2018. How can we not look back on this year and marvel at the many graces, challenges, and blessings? “The Lord has been great with us and we are joyful,” says the Psalmist.

What a great joy it will be to finally open the doors of the new Magdala Hotel! Every day that passes the reality is closer. Of course, we are still waiting on some legal and bureaucratic processes, but I believe that finally we are only a few months away from receiving the first guests in Magdala.

May the Lord find us watchful. May we take advantage of the gift of every day of our life, and may we serve with love and joy all our visitors in Magdala. Soon we will share with you the statistics and report of 2018, and you will see how full of blessings this year was!

With my greetings from Magdala,

Fr. Juan María Solana, L.C.
