Reflecting on Advent:
Advent and Mercy: A Reflection on Mercy:
A Video of a talk by Maureen Waldron:
A rich and powerful
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. This site offers simple ways to enter into this Advent season, week by week, in the midst of our everyday lives.
These reflections are for adults.

Contemplating the Visitation with Zechariah
"Holidays are especially hard for people who are sick, not only because of the isolation caused by their illness, but their inability to get around often means they can’t participate in the ways they used to. Gift-giving occasions can be especially challenging for those who are hospitalized or housebound. We could help out by getting a gift list from someone unable to shop and offer to buy and wrap their gifts for them."
From "Visit the Sick" in the Rediscovering the Corporal Works of Mercy page.
