The best preparation for Christmas is Advent Prayer. All of our preparations for Christmas are very important, but none can compare with our spiritual preparation. The issue of The Word Among Us available at the doors of the churches is a wonderful aide to help us on our Advent journey. The book contains the important scripture readings from each day at daily Mass during Advent. For each reading there is an appropriate commentary geared to put us into the true Christmas spirit of Advent.
Another great preparation would be to go to the news section of our parish website (sawatn.org or spwatn.org) and click on the link labeled Advent Reflections. These reflections are written by Bishop Robert Barron and are guaranteed to put us into the right spirit of the season.
Our celebration of Advent, indeed our preparation for Christmas, will be as good as we make it. Come, Let Us Adore Him!
