Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of Jesus into the world on Christmas Day. We spend much time preparing for Christmas as a worldly holiday, but how much time do we actually prepare spiritually. Advent is a great time to do something we normally do not do during the other times of the year, like the sacrament of Reconciliation, spiritual devotions, the rosary, novenas, spiritual reading, liturgy of the hours, maybe daily Mass once or more a week. Happy Advent!
