The season of Advent begins this Sunday, December 2nd. For some of our readers, especially RCIA candidates, the meaning and traditions of this Season may be a brand new experience. For others, you may not fully realize the meaning behind the beautiful things we do at this time of year. I have provided here a “mini Advent lesson.” Hopefully, you can find 10 minutes of “quiet time” to review the information and gain the most from this Season.
LESSON ON THE SEASON OF ADVENT
At this time, we are “waiting for the Messiah” and “preparing Him room” in our hearts.
We are to be open to what He wants to change in us in order to for us to become more of who we are intended to be.
This first link is a beautiful, five-minute video short that most effectively ushers in the sentiments and meaning of Advent.
This second link gives you a fairly complete look at the meaning and practices during this season.
Wishing you and your families a very blessed Advent Season!
