We begin our new liturgical year with the Season of Advent. For four weeks, we prepare ourselves for the celebration of the Nativity of the Lord and for a rebirth of faith.
Dignity/SD is providing a weekly reflections booklet to help center your prayers and your preparations. We will explore a theme for the upcoming liturgical year, found in the story of St. John the Baptist. Our theme will be: "Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you; a voice of one crying out in the desert: 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.'" (Matthew 1:2b, 3c) We will become the voices crying out into the desert of the our modern world to prepare the way of the Lord.
Feel free to visit this site everyday and read the booklet here, or you can download the booklet to your computer and read it at your pace. The reflections are fast and easy, designed for you to reflect as much, or as little, as you would like. If you like what you read and are so moved, feel free to share the booklets with whom ever you would like.
May the peace of the Season fill your hearts and bring you closer to our most wonderful and glorious God.
