Second Week of Advent



Lord, give us pure hearts and minds as we await the coming of your Son.  Increase our hope.  We praise and thank you for all the good things you have done and continue to do for us.  May we serve you and one another in the love Jesus came to earth to bring.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

I do too Janean! I grew up in a Baptist church and did not hear of Advent until attending a Methodist church in college. My husband and I were actually invited to light the love candle of the Advent wreath for a church service.

Of course now as a convert to Catholicism, we celebrate each year.
