Let Us Be Light Prayer Card       

Advent is a time of great activity, which takes us from one place to another, often overwhelming us, but also filling us with renewed energy. We unwittingly combine religious and secular activities. We end up so weary that we forget what we are actually celebrating, awaiting the Light of the World.

We are all able to reflect the light that is Jesus. We still have time to slow down, take a break and devote time to getting ready and enjoying the wonderful Advent celebrations with our families. We can still be the light to shine on others for them to see Jesus, the light of the world. We shall shine lights of friendship, love, companionship, generosity, compassion and peace.

The Advent Wreath Activity

The Advent wreath that we see in our parishes during the month of December helps us to reflect upon and count the Sundays to come before the birth of Baby Jesus. This Advent wreath is ever present in our parishes and may also be placed in our homes.

Consider giving the Advent wreath higher significance this year. Rather than just having it as a Christmas decoration, pray weekly for a special purpose that needs an extra dose of hope. Download this small The Advent Wreath Activity, and practice it with your students, families or community.

Praying the O Antiphons

The “O Antiphons” are a tradition of prayer during a period of time known as the Octave of Advent. Thus, they begin on December 17th and continue through the 23rd. The seven antiphons are traditionally recited prior to the Magnificat during Vespers as part of the Liturgy of the Hours. The eighth day of the octave is Christmas Eve, so Vespers for that evening is the Christmas Vigil.

We invite you to download reflections on the “O Antiphons” and incorporate them into your personal reflections, as well as into your family or class activities.
