A Prayerful Heart is a Watchful Heart (#801, Advent 1)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

First Sunday of Advent (Year B) • What are we watching for? Christians should be ready for the coming of Christ, not only at the end of the world but every day of our daily. Making time to pray every day will help you be more watchful. This Advent pray for a watchful heart. (3 Dec 2017)

Point to Ponder: You can follow along with the Daily Prayers For Advent from the Creighton University website. The pattern is very simple:

  • Gather your family and light the candle.
  • Make the Sign of the Cross.
  • Pray the daily prayer.
  • Brief pause for reflection
  • Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
  • “Come, Lord Jesus”

Point to Discuss: Talk to a friend about where you both saw Jesus today.

Point for Action: Make a place and pick a time for your daily Advent prayers.
