Preparing for Christmas with Pope Benedict XVI, An Advent Novena
by Pope Benedict XVI
Preparing for Christmas with Pope Benedict XVI
is an ideal prayer companion for the busy days leading up to Christmas.
Available for the first time in English, this Advent companion is brief
enough to be used whenever a few minutes are available and can easily
be carried in a purse or pocket. The antiphons, reflections, and
meditations in this novena are all derived from homilies, audiences, and
other talks by the Pope.
Whether joined to a parish's celebration of daily Mass, prayed at
various parish meetings, or used at home around the table, this novena
offers a wonderful way to reflect and re-center during Advent.
