“Advent is not about a sentimental waiting for the Baby Jesus”
—Richard Rohr

Advent is a time to focus our expectation and anticipation on “the adult Christ, the Cosmic Christ,” who challenges us to empty ourselves, to lose ourselves, to surrender. Preparing for Christmas offers daily meditations, prayers, Scripture readings, and questions for reflection for each day of Advent.
