Daily reflections during Advent

The Advent season is a time of hopeful accompanying. We accompany the Holy Family on their journey. We accompany Christ as he enters into this world. We accompany each other in an effort to make Christ's continued presence known today. This Advent, America will offer daily Advent reflections, based on each day's Scripture readings, from Elizabeth Kirkland Cahill. We hope that the fruits of these reflections will accompany you throughout the each day, and fill you with joyful anticipation throughout the Advent season.
