In Daily Devotions for Advent 2019, the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles share their distinctive spirituality, which seamlessly blends contemplative lives of prayer with active ministry in schools, healthcare centers, and retreat houses. In this seasonal devotional, the sisters invite readers to blend the contemplative discipline of seeking God dwelling within them while they reach out in compassion to a world in need of the Gospel.
Offering spiritual guidance from the first Sunday of Advent through Christmas Day, each two-page daily devotion offers brief Bible verses, prayers, wise and practical reflections on the Word of God, and an easy-to-do spiritual exercise that can usually be completed the same day. These daily devotions by the Carmelites will help root readers prayer in the rich soil of Advent readings as they get ready for Christmas.
The Living Gospel series of devotionals for Lent and Advent offers spiritual insight and practical wisdom from popular Catholic preachers, speakers, and homilists. A new voice each season and a simple format invite Catholics to hear and embrace the living Word of God.
