Advent & Christmas 13/14

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.
