Join Fr. Agustino Torres, CFR on an Advent journey led by the saints and the Holy Family to prepare yourself to enter into the story of Christ's birth. Prepare Your Heart features daily meditations on a passage from scripture, reflection questions, prayer and space for journaling and notetaking.
Each week of Advent, you will embark on a new path informed by Franciscan spirituality to guide you to becoming closer to God:Themes for each week are:
- Week One, the way of Nazareth: a spirituality that attunes you to the needs of others and the hidden presence of God.
- Week Two, the way of the saints: featuring Sts. Lucy, Nicholas, Juan Diego, and Our Lady of Guadalupe, whose feast days fall during Advent; they will teach you to live with intentionality, humility, and devotion.
- Week Three, the way of St. Joseph: revealing the creative courage of Jesus’s foster father, teaching you how he makes a home for each of us in the heart of God.
- Week Four, the way of Mary: a tutorial in learning how to say yes to God’s call for your life and trusting in his loving providence.
Prepare Your Heart is perfect for both individual and group use.
Online resources include: free companion videos; ideas for celebrating Sundays in Advent with family, friends, and small groups; and a downloadable leader’s guide.
