Daily Advent Reflections Kickoff!
Click the image below to go to Fr. Robert Barron message.
Welcome to this great Advent journey! I'm so glad you're joining me and thousands of others during this holy season. Advent doesn't officially commence until tomorrow but I wanted to send you short introductory message.
In its simplest terms, Advent is the time we prepare for Christ. It's the great liturgical season of waiting, but not a passive waiting. We yearn, we search, and we reach out for the God who will come to us in human flesh.
That's what we'll be doing for next twenty five days, beginning tomorrow and lasting through Christmas. Each day I'll send you a new reflection. In the email, you'll find a link where you can discuss the reflection with others, share it with friends, or post it on social media. It's a quick and easy way to evangelize.
May we spend these holy days together, journeying through Advent like the Magi on our way to the newborn King.
Fr. Robert Barron
