Reflections for Advent & the 12 Days of Christmas

The following reflections come from the many friends of Holy Family who worship and pray together throughout the year in the Retreat Center Chapel. These individuals and families come from every walk of life and age group, and they bring to us a deep sense of faith in the goodness of God.

The sentiments, insights and also the images here are powerful and moving. They are beacons of light in the midst of darkness. And because they take us through the entire Christmas season, we have the good fortune of abiding with the Christ Child for some weeks after the secular holidays have passed. It's a bit counter-cultural, but so was Jesus!

Hopefully, amid the swirl and the activity of the holiday season, these pages will offer us opportunities to see where God is living and active in our lives, and to find moments to be thankful for this mystery of God, our Emmanuel, dwelling among us.
