What Are People Saying about this Title?

"Their gift and task is to communicate the Gospel message. They are women of the Word. In these pages, the Daughters of St. Paul invite us to be washed in the Word by prayerfully pondering the Sacred Scripture throughout the Advent Season. Speaking from their own experience of prayer, sixteen sisters skillfully guide us in the simple act of holy reading, readying our hearts for the wonder of Christmas and for Christ's constant coming throughout the year."
Michael Downey, Professor of Systematic Theology and Spirituality, Saint John's Seminary, Carmarillo, CA; author, The Heart of Hope

All in all, this attractive little volume is a wonderful devotional resource that gives readers the opportunity to deepen their spiritual lives during Advent and Christmas. It can also serve as a gentle introduction to the practice of lectio divina for those unfamiliar with this method of scriptural meditation. The book is perhaps best purchased for individual use. However, because it is quite inexpensive, parish libraries may wish to obtain several copies for the use of parishioners.
