Christmas is coming.

We call it the most wonderful time of the year…and the busiest time of the year. In fact, when Christmas is around the corner, we have less time than ever to do the things we want. We have to prepare the house, accomplish a massive amount of shopping, and prepare to travel or to host our loved ones. Of course everyone is stressed! How can we not be? Christmas seems more commercialized and more secularized every year. At the same time, we know deep down that we ought to take a step back from all the busyness and prepare our hearts for Christmas Day. But even when we try to focus on Christ, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Yes, we want a great Christmas. We want a Christmas that isn’t so rushed. We want the joy that only Emmanuel can bring. But how can we do everything we need to do, and still have a holy, peace-filled Christmas?

Advent first. Christmas second.

There is an answer, and it’s this: if you want a great Christmas, you need to have a great Advent first. Advent is crucial because it reminds us of the ultimate purpose of Christmas. It helps us prepare our hearts for the birth of Jesus Christ, so that we’re spiritually ready to celebrate, not just ready because we’ve wrapped all the gifts and baked all the cookies and hung all the lights.

But what does it mean to celebrate Advent? How can you, a busy Catholic, work it into your own schedule? You can do so with our new digital series Good Catholic, Great Advent.

Why join this series?

Good Catholic, Great Advent is a 22-day devotional series that begins on the first Sunday of Advent. It provides daily articles, videos, and reflections that can be completed in about 15 minutes a day. It fills in the gaps between the Sundays of Advent and gives you a road to Christmas that makes room for Jesus. You will be taken on a journey that helps you live Advent to the full, and not only that—you will discover beautiful truths that prepare you for Christmas Mass and the celebrations that follow. This is an Advent journey that’s doable, accessible, and flexible enough for a busy schedule.

Instead of finding yourself exhausted and overwhelmed on Christmas Eve, saying, “I’m not ready!” Good Catholic, Great Advent will enable you to say, “I am spiritually ready for Christmas this year.”

Thank you for a most inspiring preparation for the birth of our Lord, God and Saviour. I have got so much out of it that I am looking forward to Christmas Midnight Mass more than I usually do. I always love Midnight Mass but this year is will have much more significance. Again, thank you. May the joy, peace and blessings of the lord Jesus be with you and yours tonight.

I am learning so much from Great Advent. The practice of humility and integrity are some areas I plan to focus on doing better in my call to holiness. Whitney said it well when she stated that God came into the world to rescue sinners. Yes, we are all sinners! Just remember sinners can become saints.

I am so enjoying his commentary and how he interweaves stories of his childhood into the topic he’s discussing. I’m sure he is much loved at his parish. What a blessing!
