5-Minute Prayers Aound the Advent Wreath
Lisa Hendey, Catholic social media expert and creator of CatholicMom.com, presents five-minute daily devotions to help Catholic households embrace the spiritual riches of Advent.
This daily prayer book is created for use around an Advent wreath in Catholic households of any configuration. It contains twenty-eight devotional services, each designed to last only five minutes – an achievable goal for busy families. The single-page service includes: 1) a simple candle lighting, 2) a brief scripture passage paired with a reflection question for adults and older children and one for younger children, 3) silence, and 4) a closing prayer. Rooted in scriptural images of light, the booklet can be used perennially.
“Just the resource I’ve been looking for! Bringing together the ancient O’ Antiphons, scripture, and prayers, with excellent discussion questions, this easy format is totally accessible and practical for busy households like yours and mine.” – Lisa Mladinich, founder of AmazingCatechist.com
