The Little Way of Advent follows a format similar to The Little Way of Lent. Following the Advent and Christmas season daily Scripture readings, Fr. Caster provides an inspirational reflection for each day and a quote from St. Thérèse that helps to shed light on the reflection. Because the book is not dated, it can be used in any year. The author provides a reflection for each Sunday in the A, B, and C cycle, one for every weekday in Advent and, as an additional feature, one for every day in the Christmas season. Stock #: T36169

Wish it had more St. Therese

Somewhat inspiring, but I wish the text included more of St. Therese's thoughts.

I never received this book in time for Advent.
I had an e mail saying it was received in Chicago, Nov.23rd.
My mailman checked. couldn't be found. Somehow it finally
arrived the end of December.


I never received it.

Great Way to Start the Day!

Beginning each morning with "The Little Way of Advent" gave my day focus and direction for the Advent Season. I lived the season instead of it just being there in the back of my mind. I felt more Catholic than I have in a long time. I greeted the birth of our Lord with such enthusiasm and continued on into the new year and through the Epiphany. This is a must do each year. It put me in a frame of mind for prayer and reflection each and every day.
