"Advent is not about a sentimental waiting for the Baby Jesus," Richard Rohr asserts. Advent is a time to focus our expectations and anticipation on “the adult Christ, the Cosmic Christ,” who challenges us to empty ourselves, to lose ourselves, to surrender. Richard Rohr’s Scriptural reflections for Advent are the perfect preparation for the Christmas season. This beautiful redesign provides daily reflections for the Advent season, along with each day's Scripture readings and questions for reflection.

Very Thought Provoking

This was a great help to me in my reflective time during Advent. I found the meditations to be insightful, thought--provoking and down to earth. What a blessing!

Nativity tree

Beautiful, and I will keep my Nativity tree out all year as a reminder of all the birth of Our Lord means. And the role of Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, and kings!
