Advent 2020: Come, Let Us Adore

“Advent is here. What a marvelous time in which to renew your desire, your nostalgia, your real longing for Christ to come–for him to come every day to your soul in the Eucharist. The Church encourages us: Ecce veniet! – He is about to arrive!” (St. Josemaria Escriva; The Forge, no. 548).

Advent is a time of joyful anticipation. It is during this season that the Church invites us to look inward and renew our spiritual life as we prepare to welcome the Lord into our heart and home. There is no better way to seek the presence of the Lord than spending time in quiet, peaceful prayer with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

The St. Josemaria Institute invites you to join us this Advent as we arrange our weekly tasks and set out to spend extra time with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. With this in mind, we are pleased to share Come, Let Us Adore, a reflection guide and companion for making a weekly Holy Hour in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

Available as a free digital PDF download (below), this companion guide shares practical tips and suggestions to assist you in making a fruitful holy hour. Included for each week is an excerpt from St. Josemaria’s Advent homily The Christian Vocation paired with a podcast and reflection questions to help guide your time of prayer.

We hope that this resource will help renew your desire, your nostalgia, and your longing for Christ to come! Together let’s make this Advent season a prayerful time of preparation, not only in our hearts but in those around us as we look forward to welcoming the Infant Jesus on Christmas Day.
