Wednesday 24th to Saturday 27th November 2021
Many of us sense that honest reflection on the ordinary experiences of our life has a prayer value. Our Advent dream is that we will live in joyful hope through the experiences of our lives. In a style that is reverent, reflective, challenging and faith-filled, Fr. Willie Purcell reflects on the mystery and reality of our own Advent story as we prepare for the celebration of Christmas.
