One of the first seasonal commercials to be released this year puts family at the heart of Christmas.
Send us the names of your loved ones who are sick or suffering. The Aleteia prayer network of 550 monasteries will take them to prayer for the World Day of the Sick.
Advent has begun and we can now really focus on the meaning of the season. And as usual, at this time of year, companies are releasing their Christmas commercials, which sometimes reflect what Christmas is all about — or what it should be about.
This commercial from the British department store John Lewis is a shining example of retailers sharing the Christmas spirit. Without giving too much of the story away, the short ad shows the incredible lengths families will go for each other, and how a little effort can go a very long away.
So take a few minutes to get into the festive mood, and remember all the wonderful people who open their homes and their hearts to complete strangers.
