Advent calendar prayer and reflection for 1 December
Advent is the season in which Christians must rekindle in their hearts the hope that they will be able to, with God’s help, renew the world.
Pope Benedict XVI
These words from Pope Benedict XVI remind us of the importance of the Advent season. Looking forward to the coming of Christ reminds us how he transforms the world. And we hope to renew the world to reflect God's kingdom here on earth. We pray especially for all God's children who are seeking refuge.
Although Advent 2017 begins on 3 December, your Christmas planning may have begun already. Prepare to celebrate the joy and hope of Christmas time using our beautiful range of World Gifts that change lives and Advent service.
