Unwrap the gifts of Advent
Christmas isn't a shopping season, says Joan Chittister, O.S.B. It's the culmination of an Advent season meant to leave us with a little attitude that'll get us through the rest of the year.

- What are we waiting for during Advent? by Alice Camille (In Good Faith)
The season of Advent teaches the meaning of time. It is about preparation and waiting, learning how to anticipate and be ready for that which is not of this world. The symbols recall eternal life, the circle of God which has no beginning or end, and the light which triumphs over darkness. Rich symbolic ritual allows us to transcend the ordinary and invite the Christ into our human life.

- Lent: A time to turn in the right direction by Fr. Paul Boudreau (In Good Faith)
In order to turn our lives around, we observe the practice of “penance,” that is, to change our minds and hearts. Fulfillment means leaving the temporary world behind to embrace God’s kingdom. Lent gives us practices to bring us closer to his kingdom; these practices are detailed: Fasting, prayer, and charity.
