 Our Description

Take time this Advent to rediscover what it means to be Catholic with "Rediscover Advent," the new book from internationally known speaker and author Matthew Kelly. Each day you will find a brief citation from one of the lectionary readings for the day, a reflection on some aspect of Catholic faith and practice taken from Kelly's bestselling book "Rediscover Catholicism," one or two questions for meditation, and a brief prayer.

These timely and inspirational words will help renew your enthusiasm for being Catholic, while encouraging you to delve more deeply into the spirituality of the Advent season. Designed for individual reading or for group study, Rediscover Advent is the perfect companion as you prepare for the coming of Christ, both this year and for years to come.
