This program originally aired just after the first Sunday of Advent. Here Frances and Mark explore a little about the meaning of Advent and the Liturgical Calendar for the Season. They discuss each of the four weeks of Advent and their individual focus on some aspect of preparing for the arrival of Christmas. They also offer a somewhat more challenging message about the coming of the Lord from a reflection written by a woman who understood that there are two Comings of Christ, and each individual Advent Season is designed to better prepare us for His eventual Second Coming. Finally, this program discusses some of the important symbols of the Advent Season, goes over the Mass Readings for the first two weeks of Advent (2015), and then offers some very practical advice on how we might individually prepare ourselves for the Coming of the Lord.
