Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.
(Ephesians 5:14)

By sleep, says Ambrosiaster (late 4th century), the Apostle Paul means a certain stupor of mind. To be indifferent, unconcerned, muddle-headed, distracted from the important things of life, the path of salvation, is like being asleep. Indeed, it is a kind of death. We need to wake up so that we can repent and acknowledge Christ, to pass "from the shadows to the light. from death to life". St John Chrysostom says that the Apostle is not speaking only to unbelievers: "For there are many believers, no less than unbelievers, who remain trapped in various sins." We are all called to wake up. How relevant this is to Advent as we anticipate the coming of the Word made flesh, the light of the world!

~  Fr. Andrew
