Advent calendar reflection for 2 December

A refugee family in Somilia Advent reflection

This Advent, pray for refugee families uprooted by drought in Somalia (Mohammed Sheik Nor/Catholic Relief Services)

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.

Psalm 26: 1. 4. 13–14 r. 1

This Advent, which starts tomorrow on 3 December, take time to rekindle hope in your heart. Use our Advent calendar for inspiration. Every day we’ll be sharing stories of lives transformed, the ways we can all make the world a more comforting and joyful place, and prayers to guide your Advent journey. 

We invite you to pray for our sisters and brothers on the move, and all those who are searching for a better life for their families.  

Pause now to decide when you will take a moment of calm reflection every day during Advent. Sign up to receive our weekly email reflections and we’ll send you regular reminders about the calendar.
