Preparing for Christmas with Pope Benedict XVI
Preparing for Christmas with Pope Benedict XVI is an ideal prayer companion for the busy days leading up to Christmas. Available for the first time in English, this Advent companion is brief enough to be used whenever a few minutes are available and can easily be carried in a purse or pocket. The antiphons, reflections, and meditations in this novena are all derived from homilies, audiences, and other talks by the Pope.
Whether joined to a parish's celebration of daily Mass, prayed at various parish meetings, or used at home around the table, this novena offers a wonderful way to reflect and re-center during Advent.
