|FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT|
|READING AND PRAYER|
|LIGHTING OF THE FIRST CANDLE|
“Pay attention!” because something remarkable is beginning, something wondrous and of the utmost importance to your life is happening, something earth-shattering and life-changing.
The rhythm of the liturgical seasons is much more about helping us than about simply marking the great events of salvation history. To enter into the mystery that Christmas means to welcome Christ at Christmas and at His Second Coming. It is especially the preparation for that great moment that the liturgy and its calendar, and in a special way Advent, is inviting us to really pause and reflect.
