Yes, according to our calendars, Advent is still more than a month away! But for me, it started a week ago with the launch of press activities for my new little Advent devotional 5-Minute Prayers Around the Advent Wreath. I was delighted to be a guest on my friend A.J. (Amy) Cattapan’s live video podcast Cath-Lit Live. A noted author, Amy works overtime to shine the light on new projects from her fellow writers. Tonight, it was my turn and we had fun talking about all things Advent.
In the interview, Amy brings up one of the topics weighing most heavily on my heart right now: praying alone. As I shared this weekend at CatholicMom.com (“Preparing to Pray Around Your Advent Wreath”), I’ll be live on my Facebook profile and sharing the video each day on Youtube and Instagram as well. Next week, I’ll be sharing an article that deals with “praying solo”, but I hope that anyone who struggles with feeling isolated in prayer will join me this Advent season around my wreath for a quick five-minute time of quiet.Join @LisaHendey with @AJCattapan to talk about preparing for #Advent and Lisa's new @AveMariaPress book 5-Minute Prayers Around the Advent Wreath. It's not too early to start preparing to make this the best Advent ever! Click To Tweet
Advent begins on Sunday, November 27 this year. So it’s not too early to get started thinking about how to make the most of this lovely season of renewal and anticipation!
I invite you to join me for a moment of daily prayer around the Advent wreath beginning on Sunday, November 27 at 5 pm ET/2 pm PT. I’ll be live on my Facebook profile and sharing the video each day at Youtube and Instagram as well. We’ll be praying with my new Advent devotional 5 Minute Prayers Around the Advent Wreath. Be sure to download my FREE companion resources (Praying with the Saints and Advent Reflections for Families with Children) at Ave Maria Press. I can’t wait to pray with you this Advent season!
