What are your plans to make the most of this Advent?
Maybe in the chaos of this fall, you haven’t even really had a chance to think about it…but it’s there, in the middle of routine, busy, everyday life that we need Advent the most!
Pope Benedict XVI says, “It is the beautiful task of Advent to awaken in all of us memories of goodness and thus to open doors of hope.” If we take the time to pause, to remember, to pray, Advent can be a rich time for growth and renewal.
Aleteia wants to help you this Advent season. We’re offering you a daily meditation, a prayer, and links to some incredible content—for free. We want to help people find the peace and hope that Jesus offers each Christmas. And Advent is the time to make our souls ready.
Saint Ambrose encourages us, saying, “Open wide your door to the one who comes. Open your soul, throw open the depths of your heart to see the riches of simplicity, the treasures of peace, the sweetness of grace. Open your heart and run to meet the Sun of eternal light that illuminates all men.”
Will you open the door of your heart to Christ? Will you join us this Advent?
