Have you ever wanted to better understand the deeper mysteries of Advent? Have you ever wanted to be more spiritually prepared for Christmas? How can understanding Advent help us better prepare for Christmas?
In preparation for the four-week Advent season that begins on December 3rd, Adult Faith Formation is offering a three-part series, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Advent by Dr. Brant Pitre, on Monday evenings at 7:00 PM on October 30, November 6 and November 13.
In this fascinating series, you will learn why Advent begins with end-time prophecies about the Tribulation, the Particular and Final Judgments, and the Second Coming of Christ. We will also learn about the Hebrew meaning of Jesus’ Nativity, and what it means for our lives as Catholic Christians.
As Jesus relived the life of Israel, the Church relives the life of Christ through its liturgical year, beginning with Advent, and we Catholics relive the life of Christ with the Church in our daily lives. What better way to spiritually prepare for Advent and Christmas than to learn about one of the Church’s great seasons of its liturgical year!
