Advent is a spiritual journey that Christians take, through the truths of Scripture that point to the birth of Messiah, to a reaffirmation that he has come, is present in the world today and will come again in glory.
Radio Maria Canada features insightful reflections of The Daughters of St. Paul, prayerful and meditative ruminations on the daily Gospel readings for Advent and Christmas seasons:
"Advent Grace" Daily readings @ 7:15 AM / 10:30 AM / 7:15 PM....
~ 3rd Week of Advent~
During the Advent season families should spend time together preparing for the approaching celebration of the birth of Christ. An Advent wreath can be a great focal point for family prayers and holiday celebrations.
We often miss Advent's power because these December weeks are full of secular Christmas parties and preparations for Christmas. Each year, the busyness of this season serves to distract us from having an Advent season that truly prepares us for the celebration of Christmas, with all its meaning.
