The Prayers Of The People
The Doubblestein Family Light The Candle Of Advent One
The season of preparation, the season of Advent has come again. The ancient texts call us to repentance, preparation and expectation. We light candles to dispel the darkness. We sing "Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus, Born to set Thy people free".
During the liturgical renew of the 1970's, Advent began to be seen somewhat as less a "mini-Lent" with its color purple and more a season of quiet anticipation with Marian blue.
Oh Come, Oh Come Immanuel.
