Here are three new resources to help you have an Advent focused on the coming of Christ.
5-Minute Prayers Around the Advent Wreath by Lisa Hendey offers a prayer, Bible reading, and reflection for each day of Advent. It is designed to help "properly prepare hearts for Christ's coming." I love the short readings and reflections which are great for praying as a family while lighting the Advent wreath each day. This is a book that can be used year after year! Lisa is also having a series on CatholicMom.com that will help you enhance your spiritual journey this Advent season.

Welcoming the Christ Child with Padre Pio by Susan De Bartoli is designed for Advent but can really be used any time of year (so if you get this book and don't finish it during Advent, you can still read it!). It provides 28 days of reflections. It includes quotes by Padre Pio, reflections, and prayers. So, if you are a fan of Padre Pio or if you want to learn more about this modern saint's life and miracle, this is a great book.
Messages of Light for Advent and Christmas 2022 by Fr. Michael White and Tom Corcoran offers reflections from the First Sunday of Advent through Epiphany. Unlike the other books, this one is only good for this year, but it also offers the shortest reflections. So, if you are really pressed for time, but want to add a spiritual booster to your Advent, this is a great book for you! It offers a short Scripture passage, a reflection, and a question to ponder.
