About this item

Don't Waste Another Advent!

Keep Christ in Christmas this year by turning to this slim volume of daily Advent meditations by Bishop Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet, one of the greatest homilists in the history of the Church.

Carefully selected to lift your soul to God in those hectic days that stretch from Thanksgiving to Christmas, these forty daily meditations will keep you mindful of the real meaning of Christmas while affording you an admirable distillation of the doctrines and piety of our Holy Catholic Church.

With the help of Bishop Bossuet — and the sense of God's grandeur and love that permeates his every word — all through the rush toward Christmas you'll stay mindful of the holy words of Isaiah foretelling the birth of our savior; you'll find yourself marveling at the Annunciation and the Visitation; you'll rejoice in anticipation of the coming birth of Jesus; and, finally, you'll look forward to kneeling with St. Joseph and the Blessed Virgin in silent adoration of the incarnate Son of God.

This year, you won't (as so often happens) arrive at Midnight Mass distracted, exhausted, and frazzled, having neglected your Advent devotions and your ordinary prayers, too. Instead, you'll find yourself stepping lightly into church, ready and eager to adore the newborn King, your soul what it should be: a fit dwelling place for the Redeemer.

Don't waste another Advent!

Let Meditations for Advent keep you prayerful amidst the worst distractions of the holiday season. Let it draw you daily closer to Jesus, whose birth the season celebrates, and whose birth your soul yearns to celebrate, too.

Valuable meditations for Advent preparation
Bishop Bossuet as a French bishop who was one of the favorit spiritual writers of St. Louis Marie de Montfort, who quotes from him in his own excellent writings. The Meditations for Advent have been translated into modern American English. They are simply delightful! Fresh, bright, clear, simple. This is a unique and insightful author who is 100% orthodox Catholic, excellent stylist, one-of-a-kind. I would recommend this book to anyone.
