Parish-wide preparations for the season of Advent are often anchored upon a particular theme. This practice offers their members-regardless of age-the opportunity to participate corporately in "preparing the way of the Lord." What the people need is a "tool" that will heighten their spiritual awareness during the weeks preceding this holy time.
Now Lupita Vital, a sought-after keynote speaker who is active with the association of Hispanic Ministry directors in California, has provided such a tool. This specific focus of this handy and thoughtful book is on finding the light that guides us to the Holy Family during the holidays.
By means of scripture readings, reflections, prayer, and invitations to action, your parish can be bound together in developing a sense of the drama and wonder of Jesus' birth.
