Advent Season ..Week 2 … Peace

The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming at the end of time and also to the anniversary of the Lord’s birth on Christmas. 


Let us pray:

Dear God,

As we watch mothers and fathers prepare for Christmas, we think about Mary, and Joseph, who lovingly took care of baby Jesus. Help us to be thankful for those who lovingly take care of us.
