Advent marks the beginning of the liturgical year. In the Western church it begins 4 Sundays before Christmas Day. For Orthodox and Celtic Christians it begins the evening of November 15th – forty days before Christmas Day. Advent is a season of waiting. Not passive, idle waiting but an active time of preparation and prayer. We prepare to celebrate our remembrance of Christ’s birth, welcome him afresh as savior and anticipate his return when the fullness of God’s redemption will be revealed and all creation will be made new.
Christmas is a 12 day celebration of this joyful event. It culminates in the celebration of the Eve of Epiphany January 6th which commemorates the coming of the Magi. This set of 12 cards will help you reflect on the Advent and Christmas story. They begin with Celtic Advent so there are 6 for Advent, 1 for Christmas Eve, 4 for the Christmas season and 1 for the Eve of Epiphany.
This package includes 3 sets of prayer cards for the Advent and Christmas season.
