Advent is a season of preparation and hope before celebrating the Nativity at Christmas and for Christ’s Second Coming. On the First Sunday of Advent, we focus and look forward to Christ’s Second Coming.
Prayer of the Day
Stir up your power, Lord Christ, and come. By your merciful protection waken us to the threatening dangers of our sins, and keep us blameless until the coming of your new day, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
