Advent Resource Guide 2005 - Prepare!
No room at the inn, no room in our diaries!
Have you booked your place at the Crib?
Advent preparation! It’s hard enough to squeeze Christmas in without coping with four weeks of lead-up to the event!
Yet we know without adequate preparation it can be like queuing for our favourite sports event, concert or movie, only to find that the tickets are all sold out! Advent at its most basic is about making room in our hearts for the arrival of Christ. “May our hearts be his birthplace, our lives his home!” is how one Christmas card put it.
This Advent Guide Resource Guide will help with your own preparation. Pick and choose what you wish, but be sure to get ready now – stay awake, make straight paths, witness to the light so that with Mary we may be true servants of the Lord.
