Making Advent a More Holy Season

Advent videos

I just came across these two videos that provide enrichment for the Advent season.

The first video is via Catholic News Service and features youth minister Emily “Em” Anderson (St. James Catholic Church, Falls Church, VA) providing some insights into how to make Advent a more holy season. I especially like her suggestion of praying the Liturgy of the Hours during Advent.


The second is Bishop Barron’s reflection on Advent as preparation for a revolution—what a great thought!

  1. Hi Joe,
    Have you or any of your readers heard of Stations of the Crib? I’m looking for a good on-line resource for this activity.

    • Hi Christine. I’ve heard it mentioned before but have not seen an example. I believe it is actually a book from Ave Maria Press.
