“Your light will come, Jerusalem; the Lord will dawn on you in radiant beauty. You will see his glory within you.”
This passage from the Church's Morning Prayer bookends your Advent journey in our new Advent and Christmas daily study booklet. Draw Near enables you to develop a regular prayer practise that will help you discover purpose and meaning in your life by fanning the embers of Christ's presence inside you as you prepare for the light of his birth.
From the first Sunday of Advent through the feast of the Baptism of the Lord, each week focuses on a particular seasonal theme, urging us to:
wake up, prepare the way, rejoice, welcome the light, and marvel at Christ's coming
Each day begins with a line from the Liturgy of the Hours or the Bible—a psalm, prayer, antiphon, or response—and includes a brief spiritual meditation, morning and evening prayers, and a unique "Travelling Question" to consider during the day to help you concentrate on opening yourself to God.
