Let's make this Advent a very holy time of preparation for our Lord's coming.  There are very good Advent meditations to be found on this website under "Saints' Books" I think it is.  The more we prepare this Advent, the more special will be our Christmas--believe me!  I have yet to light the first candle on my Advent wreath.  I'll do it before I eat my supper and then will eat by its candlelight.  I've been out all day so I've been unable to look to my Advent wreath; thankfully, before Mass this morning we lighted our church Advent wreath with a very lovely ceremony together as a community.  

O come, o come Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel!

I recommend that you bookmark the Advent meditations.  That's what I do anyway.  God bless you!

What a pity!  The website that used to have Advent music does not have Advent music this year--not yet anyway!  Now I'll have to seek another website for my Advent music.  I'll have to buy an Advent CD for next year.  I know of a good place to buy it from.

Great!  I just found a list of Catholic Advent hymns on-line!  Too bad there are ads in between the hymns.

Thanks be to God, today I was able to obtain a CD of traditional Advent hymns!

I hope that you are all set, or nearly all set with your outdoor manger scene, Shin.  I would love it if you'd post a picture of it for us to appreciate and admire!  God bless you!

Not finished yet. I was cutting out St. Joseph earlier tonight, after having finally fixed the jig saw enough for the work. Cheesy

Yes I would like to take a picture when it is done!

I am glad you are enjoying the traditional hymns!

I can't wait to see your nativity scene!  Enjoy working on it and let us know when you are finished, okay?  The hymns are great!  God bless you!

                 The hymn Creator of the Stars of Night would make a wonderful Advent prayer.     
                  The hymn speaks of a Savior to set the people free.         
                    It is also mentioned that when the Lord Jesus came, he came not in splendor bright.

I can't say that I am familiar with that hymn, CyrilSebastian.  Is it an old hymn or a new one?

I recommend that we all read the story of our Lord's Nativity in the Mystical City of God.  The Mystical City of God can be found on-line for those who do not have the book.
