Advent, a time of reflection

Advent unlike Lent, has no rules for fasting, but it is meant to be a period of self-reflection.  Jesus is coming, and Advent is a season of making ready for His arrival.  We see Advent as a joyous season, it is also intended to be a period of preparation, much like Lent.  Prayer, scriptural reading, reconciliation, penance and fasting are appropriate throughout this season.

During Advent our constant prayer should be: "Come Lord Jesus!" (Revelations 22:20)
We should "reject ungodliness and worldly desires, and live temperately, justly, and piously in this age as we await our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of the great God and of our Savior Jesus Christ" (Titus 2:12-13.)

December 2017 - Month of the Divine Infancy

DEVOTION TO THE DIVINE INFANT JESUS

Devotion to the Divine Infant encourages people to honor the infancy of Jesus.  It is God's Will that we honor all the mysteries of out Lord's life so that we may learn to imitate His virtues and make use of the graces which each mystery imparts for our sanctification.
Consequently devotion to the sacred infancy of Jesus is a source of great graces and blessings.   It is certainly most pleasing to Jesus that we remember His infinite love in appearing among us in the form of a Child to save our souls and to win our love and confidence. 
Devotion to the Infancy of Jesus is closely associated with the popular devotion to the Infant Jesus of Prague.  It is a devotion to the Son of God, Who came to us in the form of a Child.
