What does it mean to call something “sacred?” According to the Dictionary of Biblical Imagery (InterVarsity Press), “a sacred space is a place where God is encountered in a special or direct way by virtue of which the very place becomes holy and set apart from ordinary space.”
This Advent, embrace the season as a sacred space and do so from the ease of your e-mail inbox. Sacred Advent is a daily e-mail prayer break during a busy season. Each day’s message invites you to a step-by-step progression of praying with a Scripture reading and related points of reflection. The messages also include suggestions for further exploration of Advent themes through additional online articles and prayers.
Based on the writings of Sacred Space, the trusted online prayer site by the Irish Jesuits, Sacred Advent will make this Advent a season filled with sacred moments. Sign up to receive the daily messages from the First Sunday of Advent through the Christmas season.
