Celebrate Advent with St. JudeAdvent
Advent can be a time of spiritual growth as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ. For most of us, Christmas has been a big day to look forward to before we were old enough to understand anything about it beyond that it was Jesus’ birthday. As adults, our faith encourages us to know there is always room for more growth and more wonder and more strength in our thoughts and our decisions . . . even regarding a day as well know to us as Christmas.
As we reflect on the gifts our Lord has blessed us with this year, let’s remember to offer Him our gift of heartfelt gratitude and love. To give you some options for your Advent prayers, we invite you to join us in taking time for meditation and reflection each day.
You will be in our prayers at the National Shrine of St. Jude during these days of waiting for the grace of Christmas, and we look forward to receiving your petitions, intentions, and prayers of gratitude to be remembered with a St. Jude Vigil Light.
Together we await the birth of the Savior. May your faith be refreshed as you keep yourself open to God’s love.
