Our preparations for the birth of our Savior begin... with the first candle in our Advent Wreath being lit at the first Mass of the new liturgical year.
During this time of preparation, we will hunt, chop and trim a tree, decorate our house, fine-tune our wish lists and spend many hours making special gifts for loved ones. We will continue attending our daily Masses and spend a little bit of extra time in prayer and scripture study. Our life-sized lawn nativity scene will be erected and our CD player will get over-used playing the sounds of the season.
So much to look forward to...
Thank you, Jesus!
