Paraliturgy to begin the Advent season

The novices laughing while one read the task she had drawn
because, according to them, it is very appropriate.

We enter again into one of the most beautiful seasons of the liturgical year. We started it with a simple Paraliturgy at recreation with the readings for the First Sunday of Advent. Before the Gospel, the first candle of the wreath was lighted. Then the first group proposed to the community what to do within the week. The theme chosen in line with the readings is: "Be vigilant!". Some practical suggestions were written on small pieces of paper drawn by the sisters. We agreed to share our experiences on Friday before the next group will present other suggestions for the second Sunday. We hope this will help us exert more efforts to put into practice the real meaning of the season, and prepare ourselves better for the coming of Out Lord.

A blessed and meaningful Advent to you!
