Reflections for the Season of Advent 2020
Advent, derived from Latin, means arrival or coming. In the Catholic tradition, preparation for the Advent of God begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas day. Scripture texts and prayers during the season of Advent express expectation, comfort and hope to Christians longing for the promised Light of the World, the One whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.
This Advent Reflection booklet provides a reflection for each day of Advent, based on Advent Scripture readings in the Common Christian Lectionary. Because of space constraints, only a brief portion of the selected Scripture reading is included. We hope you draw encouragement and inspiration from these reflections contributed by members from throughout the community of Edgewood College.
