Advent Resources 2013 and 2014
What is Advent ?
Lovely slide reflection on Advent ” Waiting for Jesus” (Archdiocese of Dublin)
CHRIST IS COMING
This 5 minute advent meditation focuses on the coming of Christ into our world- not just as a child in a stable but as the bringer of justice and freedom. Music for the meditation features Kyrie – I Call to You from ” Standing Still” by Jeff Johnson (www.arkmusic.com).
Some pastoral resources available for personal and school use this Advent and Christmas:
- The inter-diocesan scripture reflections for the four Sundays of Advent.
- Our own booklet for use by families and primary schools aimed at helping children enter into the meaning and spirit of Advent & Christmas.
- A reflection of slides and a blessing prayer for Advent wreaths.
- A reflection of slides on the meaning of Christmas. It takes time – a reflection on the spirit of Christmas in parts for readers.
- Jesus and Santa – getting the balance right. Litany for the coming of Christ & Mary’s Dream.
We hope you will print these off and make use of them to nourish your prayer and reflections throughout the coming weeks.
