Season of Advent
Advent has a twofold nature: It prepares
us for Christmas, when we recall Christ's
first coming among us, and it is also a time
when we look forward to his second
coming at the end of the ages. Advent is a
season of joyful expectation.

During Advent, each Sunday's Gospel
reading has a specific focus. The Old
Testament readings, especially those
taken from Isaiah, are prophecies about
the Messiah and messianic times. The
selections from the writings of the
Apostles present exhortations and
instructions on different themes of this
season.
