The Incarnation is at the heart of our holy Faith, from prophecy to fulfilment. This awe-inspiring classic will let you take a deep breath and contemplate the secret but magnificent events around this great enigma. You will be spiritually uplifted as you meditate on thirty insightful and moving meditations for Advent and Christmas.
Although the brief meditations may be read in under ten minutes every day, you may want to spend more time exploring the mysteries and allowing them to spiritually feed you again and over. Archbishop Alban Goodier offers a three-point summary of each meditation, as well as:
- Meditations on a life event in Jesus that beyond human understanding
- A description of how God bestows His blessings on you, as He did on the Holy Family.
- Advent and Christmas-related popular prayers and devotions
- Ways in which Our Lady teaches you how to live a thoughtful and active life
Advent is a time to slow down, to be sensitive, docile, and quiet, and to stare at the beauty in front of you – Almighty God, present and waiting in the womb of His chosen Mother. Similarly, the Christmas season is a time to exult in quiet devotion before our infant Savior's manger.
The superb musings on these hallowed moments by Archbishop Goodier will awaken in you the profound mystery of the Word made flesh. Archbishop Goodier leads you from the Old Testament predictions to Mary's yes, from the stable birth to Jesus' everyday existence in Nazareth. These soul-stirring meditations, based on period practises, enliven the Gospel narrative, enriching both your emotional and intellectual awareness of the ultimate mystery of God's love for you.
This memento book is a treasure for reflecting on Our Lord as the Incarnate God who came to us as a small, impoverished, and vulnerable human. The musings of Archbishop Goodier will help you raise your mind and heart to God and will nurture your prayers to the Infant Saviour. As you reflect on Jesus' secret life and God's kindness in being among us, you will develop in understanding and devotion.
