Well-known writer and preacher on social-justice issues Father John Kavanaugh will lead readers on an Advent journey reflecting on the needs of God's created world and our responsibilities to our fellow human beings, who are members of the Body of Christ.

Anyone looking to enhance the beauty and depth of their prayer life and make the Advent season what it should be--a liberating, healing, and transforming experience--will cherish this faith-building prayer companion.
