Product Description

In A Catholic Family Advent, each day starts with a quote from one of the lectionary readings for the day. This is followed by a brief reflection that talks about the Christmas symbol for that day. Next you will find a suggestion for family conversation about the symbol. This is followed by a prayer for your family to say aloud, and a suggested activity built around the symbol for the day.

Because this is a book that can be used every year during Advent, it has in it the maximum number of days that can occur during the season of Advent. It will work this year and ten years from now.

Publisher's Description

For many families, the four weeks leading up to Christmas can be a time of great stress, unrealized dreams, a commercial blur, and a financial burden. Susan Hines-Brigger, the mother of four children, knows well that the days counting down to Christmas can easily become for parents and grandparents a nightmare of whiny behavior, crowded to-do lists, and a less-than-spiritual experience. That’s why this mother who has seen and heard it all in her own home during Advent created this resource with prayers and activities: She wants to put Christ back into the family holiday celebration and help families—even hers—become holier. Using A Catholic Family Advent on a daily basis will give Catholic families time together to pray, reflect on Scripture, and do a simple activity together. This daily source of inspiration can be used in the family setting as prayer before or after meals, as morning and evening prayer, or as family time in front of the Advent wreath or Christmas crèche.
