In this season of Advent, we join with Mary, the Mother of Life, in preparing our hearts to receive the Christ Child. Enter deeper into hope by actively reading scripture and practicing the virtues. As you open your mind and heart to the Holy Spirit and encounter the Word of God, you will fix your gaze on Christ in hope that He will come again. Encounter truth, beauty and goodness and enter into joy and share that joy with others. Encounter Christ. Live differently. Become a joyful disciple of Christ.
