Preparing for the Coming of Christ this Christmas

AN ADVENT JOURNEY TO HOPE, PEACE, JOY, AND LOVE.

Share in the joy of Christ coming into your life this Christmas with your family, friends, and fellow parishioners. Pray, reflect, and share the Sunday Advent & Christmas Scripture Readings, using the method of Lectio Divina (Praying with Scripture).

Praying with Scripture is simple whether you are alone, in your family circle, or in a group. Light a candle, and begin with the Sign of the Cross, ask God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit to be with you and guide you in your prayer and reflection on the Holy Scriptures.

  1. Read the upcoming Sunday readings, or the daily scripture passage, and listen to what word or phrase stands out or draws your attention. You may even jot it down, or journal your thoughts and feelings.
  2. Reflect on what God is saying to you. (You may also put yourself in the scene by use of your imagination, or enter into a dialogue with God or Jesus, or one of the characters in the story).
    • What does the story mean to me and my relationship with God, my family, friends, or my colleagues?
    • What is God saying to me, and what is God calling me to do in my own faith community, and
      larger community?
    • Does the scripture reading inspire me to respond with love, forgiveness, or justice? How?
  3. Respond to God by thanking Him, and ask Him to gift you with more awareness of
    His presence and love in your everyday life.
  4. Rest and be still for a few moments in the awareness of God’s great love.

Share your thoughts and insights with your family, and faith community!
