The advent of Advent

Yes, only one more day before it all begins, the season we've all been waiting for.

Let us prepare to prepare for the coming of Our Savior with a little help from St. Blog's parish and the Catholic blogosphere:

We'll begin with a pep talk, this great homily made available by CERC called Advent Dynamism.

Then we'll visit the Big 3 and their old standards: EWTN, CatholicCulture, American Catholic, while Catholic Mom gets in the spirit.

For a limited time, LoveToBeCatholic has an Advent video on its home page.
American Papist meanwhile has links to the Dominican priory's prayerful videos.

Fr. Euteneuer has an Advent Challenge for us all:

The real discipline of the Christian life, especially in a season of spiritual "preparation," is the discipline of prayer. It comes down to a decision - made every day - to let go of our passionate involvement in the things of the world, as necessary as these things are, and to go into the inner sanctum of the heart, one-on-one, alone with the Lord. That is where we become transformed, interiorly, by grace and see things as God sees them. That is where we really prepare to meet Christ in a new way at Christmas.

Here is my Advent challenge: pray every day during Advent, and you will be treated to a Christmas in which you "see" Christ like never before.

Finally, Amy shows us what to avoid this Advent.
