Advent and Christmas Resources

 

Celebrating Advent and Christmas

Discover music collections, prayer resources, playlists and more, all created to help you prepare for and celebrate the arrival of Our Lord.

 

The more room we make in our hearts and lives for Jesus, the more we are conformed to his image, the more of him there is in the world. As Thomas Merton wrote, “The Advent mystery in our own lives is the beginning of the end of all, in us, that is not yet Christ” (Seasons of Celebration).

This Advent and Christmas, while enjoying the beauty and festivity of the season, may we all go a little deeper. Let us recognize the parts of ourselves that are “not Christ,” and make room for more of him. Let us deepen our prayer, our meditation on his word and our reverence for the Eucharist, all the while imploring the Holy Spirit for this grace. As the popular hymn puts it, “Prepare we in our hearts a home where such a mighty guest may come” (“On Jordan’s Bank”).

This Advent, may Christ come into our hearts more fully than ever before. Come, Lord Jesus! Maranatha!
