Below is the result of the prayer and meditation of many parts of our Franciscan family.  The Assisi Pilgrims sent from our schools as well as the Brothers contributed the daily reflections. Little direction was given to the participants other than to  “pray over the readings and write what God is telling you.”  Thus the different styles and approaches are truly the work of the Holy Spirit.

Our Holy Father Saint Francis experienced the Advent and Christmas season as a time of joy and hope for the world. Amidst the frenetic activity of the season, may each of these reflections remind you of the good news – God has come to be with us!

Pax et bonum!

Brother Damian Novello OSF

Each Day from First Sunday of Advent, December 2,  to the Epiphany  on January 6 a new Reflection will be added.

Please come back each day to pray and reflect with us as we prepare for the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
