I realized there was a problem with my "perfect" Advents of years ago.

Advent Light: How is it that the mother of our Lord should come to us?

A reflection and prayer for December 21, 2017, Day 19 of Advent

Advent Light: Ask for a sign, high and deep! Then prepare for the Reality to come

A reflection and prayer for December 20, 2017, Day 18 of Advent

Did you know there was a “mini-Lent” before Christmas?

Advent Embertide was a special time to fast and pray in the days before Jesus' birth.

Why this Hallelujah Chorus in a food court was more than just a “flash mob”

Watch: The effect is profound, and points to the deepest truth of Christmas.

Why ‘The Last Jedi’ is a perfect Advent meditation

No spoilers. Just some observations to keep in mind when you watch.

Advent Light: Zechariah’s question to the angel was a feather rustler

A reflection and prayer for December 19, 2017, Day 17 of Advent

A feast that ponders what Mary felt in the final days before Christ’s birth

December 18 was a special day in the Church's calendar to contemplate this profound mystery.

How to salvage your disappointing Advent (yes, even now)

Roll up your sleeves, pour yourself a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine) and get to work!
