Sacred Reading for Advent and Christmas 2015-2016

It's hard to believe, but Advent is right around the corner. Are you searching for a way to focus on the all-important religious aspect of this season in the midst of all the busyness? Sacred Reading for Advent and Christmas from the Apostleship of Prayer may be just what you are looking for.

As the introduction states, "Advent is all about waiting for Jesus Christ. The Gospel readings of Advent make us mindful of three ways we await Jesus - past, present, and future." This book invites you to "prayerfully encounter Jesus in the daily Gospel."

Excerpted from Sacred Reading: The 2016 Guide to Daily Prayer, this book offers a brief intro to lectio divina, the act of sacred reading. For each day of Advent through the Feast of Epiphany, there is a Gospel passage as well as questions to inspire deeper interaction with the text and with Jesus.

This book would be ideal for an at-home personal Advent retreat. It is guaranteed to help keep the focus of Advent and Christmas where it belongs - on the birth of our Savior.
