Where does Christ fit in your Christmas?
The coming of Christ has a tendency to sneak up on us. We get caught in the whirlwind of activities, Events, gatherings, decorations, baking, entertaining and so much more. In and of themselves, these can be wonderful aspects of the advent season as we grow in love and community with those around us.
But where does Christ fit into your Christmas preparation?
This year, as it did for Joseph and Mary, let it begin with a pilgrimage.
Archbishop J. Peter Sartain invites us to take an Advent trip with him, a journey that starts in our hearts, and ends at the humble manger. These brief reflections are like letters from a close friend, in which he shares personal stories, perspectives, and advice -- opening our minds to how we can best prepare our hearts for Jesus.
This Advent, break out of your routine, hold back nothing, and really prepare for Christmas.
