Advent begins soon – on November 30.
This year, Creative Communications (the publisher of the Living Faith devotionals to which I contribute – this edition, 10/8;10/9;12/7;12/9 and 12/12) asked me to write a family devotional for Advent.
These things are harder to write than you think, because honestly, what hasn’t already been said?
The approach I took was to begin with families where they are during this season. Instead of scolding and telling everyone YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG, I try to take the most common practices of this season and find space in which we can consider our gift-buying or cooking or decoration as pointers directing us to a deeper engagement with the One for whom we’re preparing.
You can purchase copies here – and I’m sure there is still time to purchase bulk copies for your parish or school.
And here’s something easy – for your own family, you can purchase a digital edition for just .99!
Also remember that I have signed books for sale here. They’d be a nice gift for a child, a catechist, or for something like The Catholic Woman’s Book of Days – a mom, friend, or grandmother.
