 Our Description


 

Edited and Compiled by Anthony F. Chiffolo

The Advent and Christmas season is a time of anticipation and preparation, celebration and joy.  Beginning with the first day of Advent and continuing through the twelve days of Christmas, Advent and Christmas With the Saints guides readers to an experience of closeness with God.  Words of devotion and excitement fill each page, from the pens of such luminaries as Francis of Assisi, Therese of Lisieux, and many, many others.

This book is arranged for use on every day of the Advent and Christmas seasons.  Each day's reflection begins with a scriptural quotation, continues with a thought from the writings of that day's featured saint, and concludes with a prayer for the day.  The daily passages of Advent and Christmas With the Saints offer profound and spiritually enriching food for the journey, drawing us closer to the joy of welcoming the Savior into our lives and cultivating a renewed appreciation of the Advent and Christmas seasons.
