ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS WISDOM FROM SAINT FRANCIS of ASSISI

ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS WISDOM FROM SAINT FRANCIS of ASSISI

It's easy to get lost in the bustle of Christmas shopping and holiday parties, while losing sight of God. Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St. Francis of Assisi offers you, the reader, a momentary break in the chaos, allowing daily meditation.

It is essential in today's postmodern culture to remember the true purpose of Advent--the preparation for and celebration of the coming of Jesus.

Each day's selection offers a new insight from one of the most beloved saints, St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis serves as an appropriate model of virtue during the time of year when it is easy to become caught up in the materialized aspects of the holiday. Through his words, we are reminded of the simplicity in poverty, the reverence of God's word, of showing gratitude, and practicing forgiveness.

Along with the words of St. Francis are daily Scripture readings and prayers that mirror his philosophy. After reflecting, you will find an "Advent action"--something simple you can do to keep the words and prayers alive throughout your day. Christians looking for a way to energize their holiday practices will cherish this guide to refocusing on the true "reason for the season," the birth of Christ.
