Behold - Daily Advent and Christmas Reflections 2013
Due to the overwhelming success of last year's pocket-size daily Advent and Christmas reflections book, we are delighted to announce that the Diocese of Wollongong is now taking orders forBehold – Daily Advent and Christmas Reflections 2013.
Advent is such a busy time of year, but it is so important that we spiritually prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ at Christmas. Behold contains short daily reflections from the beginning of Advent (1 December 2013) through to the Epiphany (5 January 2014) primarily for personal use. Each day contains a one-page reflection with two pages for Sundays and major feast days.
The daily reflections have been written by four religious orders that also run retreat centres in the Diocese of Wollongong. The aim is to provide reflections that are both theologically and spiritually rich (from the spiritual perspective of the religious order writing each reflection), yet accessible to the average reader. It also contains details about upcoming retreats at each of the retreat centres as a next step for readers who would like to go even deeper after the program has finished.
This year's reflection contributors include:
- Fr Stephen Dives msc (St Mary’s Towers, Douglas Park)
- Sr Moya Hanlen olsh (Hartzer Park, Bowral)
- Fr Paul Maunder ocd (Discalced Carmelites, Varroville)
- Fr Aloysius Rego ocd (Discalced Carmelites, Varroville)
- Fr Gerard Moran ocd (Discalced Carmelites, Varroville)
- Fr Greg Homeming ocd (Discalced Carmelites, Varroville)
- Sr Hilda Scott osb (Benedictine Abbey, Jamberoo)
Behold also features beautiful religious artworks from our rich Catholic history with enlightening “artwork spotlight” descriptions written by Fr Sean Cullen PP (Bowral).
