Meditations for Advent and Christmas
  • By Alban Goodier
Product Description

From prophecy to fulfillment, the Incarnation is the center of our holy Faith. This awe-inspiring classic will help you take a breath and ponder the hidden yet stupendous events surrounding this great mystery. You will be spiritually uplifted as you reflect upon insightful and stirring meditations -- thirty each for Advent and Christmas.

Although the short reflections may be read in less than ten minutes per day, you may wish to spend time contemplating the mysteries and allowing them to nourish you again and again. Archbishop Alban Goodier provides a handy three-point summary for each meditation, as well as:

  • Meditations on an event in Jesus' life that baffles human comprehension
  • An explanation of how God bestows His favors on you, as He did on the Holy Family
  • Popular prayers and devotions that sprang from Advent and Christmas
  • Ways in which Our Lady shows you how to live both the contemplative and the active life

Advent is a time to slow your pace of life, to be receptive, docile, and still, and to gaze at the beauty before you -- Almighty God, present, waiting in the womb of His chosen Mother. The Christmas season, likewise, is a time to rejoice in tranquil adoration before our newborn Savior's manger.

Archbishop Goodier's masterful meditations on these sacred moments will awaken in you the powerful mystery of the Word made flesh. Archbishop Goodier guides you along from the Old Testament prophecies to the pure yes of Mary, from the stable birth to the daily life of Jesus in Nazareth. These soul-stirring meditations, drawing from the customs of the time, enliven the Gospel stories in a way that will enrich both your emotional and intellectual experience of the ultimate mystery of God's love for you.

This keepsake book is a treasure for contemplating Our Lord as the Incarnate God who came to us little, poor, and vulnerable. Archbishop Goodier's reflections will aid you in raising your mind and heart to God and will nourish your prayers to the Infant Savior. You will grow in knowledge and devotion as you contemplate Jesus' hidden life and God's mercy in dwelling among us.
