Have you ever made a spiritual Christmas crib during Advent? Even the smallest children gain fruit and momentum preparing for the birth of the infant Jesus with this devotion. This year, Finer Femininity makes adding it as a daily family activity easy with the article A Spiritual Christmas Crib - New! Printables!
Our Lord is the fulfillment of the Old Testament and of every need of our eternal souls. Yet our fallen human nature leaves us longing for… something. Of course, that something is God, but the veil of this life, our sins, and vices obscure Him. Alan Scott tackles the depth of this topic in Searching for Fulfillment in Our Lives at Grow in Virtue: “God is always available, right now and in every moment, in you and all around you. And when you are in union with Him, you will know His joy because you will become profoundly aware of the gift that every moment of your day is – because it’s from Him.”
Señorita Rita at To be Valiant is to be Virtuous offers much to ponder in A Society Worth Living For. The modern world is much lacking, “Let us gather strength and pray to God for the grace to…break away from the common errors of our day and age.”
Lastly, we’d like to remind you that tomorrow is November 30, the feast day of St. Andrew the Apostle and the first day of the Christmas novena. If you’ve never practiced this particular Advent tradition, consider adding it this year. Information can be found in St. Andrew, Apostle and Martyr at Catholic Harbor of Faith and Morals, about halfway through the article under the section titled “Christmas Novena of St. Andrew.”
