“We often miss Advent’s power because these December weeks are full of secular Christmas parties and preparations for Christmas.  Each year, the busyness of this season serves to distract us from having an Advent season that truly prepares us for the celebration of Christmas, with all its meaning.”

My spiritual director has sent me to this web sight (Creighton University), to help me prepare daily in Advent, for Christmas. Creighton is a Jesuit University in Nebraska: http://onlineministries.creighton.edu/CollaborativeMinistry/Advent/
