Special Order Item
This daily prayer book is created for use around an Advent wreath in Catholic households of any configuration. It contains twenty-eight devotional services, each designed to last only five minutes—an achievable goal for busy families. The single-page service includes: 1) a simple candle lighting, 2) a brief scripture passage paired with a reflection question for adults and older children and one for younger children, 3) silence, and 4) a closing prayer. Rooted in scriptural images of light, the booklet can be used perennially. The language and tone are rich with meaning for adults, yet simple enough for teens and younger children to understand. This is a perfect prayer book to use at mealtime or any time the family can gather each day of the season, beginning on the First Sunday of Advent and continuing through Christmas Eve.
