Another quote for Advent

Thomas Merton said, "The Advent mystery is the beginning of the end of all in us that is not yet Christ."

We want everything we do in Advent to reflect this great truth--this hope--in our lives.
So, concretely--this means what? Fasting of course--and spiritual reading, extra time for prayer, attendance at the liturgy whenever possible during the week as well as on Sunday, careful examination of conscience and confession, works of charity and mercy. Anything I have left out that you'd like to add?
