1st Sunday of Advent


advent wreath card front

The first purple candle "the Candle of Hope" 
is lit on the 1st Sunday of Advent. 
It is called the prophecy candle and remind us that Jesus' coming was prophesied hundreds of years before He was born. 
The candle's purple color represents Christ's royalty 
as the Kings of Kings. 

 "Jesus said to his disciples: 
'Be constantly on the watch! Stay awake!...
You do not know when the Master of the house is coming.'"  
Mark. 13:33 First Sunday of Advent
And amid the flurry of Christmas preparations, we look for practical ways to observe the holiness of the season in our everyday lives.
Ignatian contemplation and reflective prayer encourage us in the season of Advent. Below we highlight Advent resources in the tradition of Ignatian spirituality.
