Your Journey to the Nativity

As we near the season of Advent and the Feast of Christmas, the world around us seems to be speeding up. Family and friends are coming to visit; there are so many things to do and places to be. It’s all too easy to miss the beauty and the truth within these liturgical seasons. 

During Advent especially, it can be hard to make the time to pause, find silence, and reflect on the nativity of our Lord, who came to meet us in our humility and brokenness. Jesus is proof that God has not given up on us and that He never will. He is our salvation.

This Advent, I invite you to join the Monks at Belmont Abbey in approaching the nativity. In this new email series An Advent Companion, each weekly email explores a different character or group of characters who took part in the story of Jesus’ birth. Together we will find a space in the silence of God’s love to reflect on the mercy and forgiveness in His gift of Himself to us: Jesus. 

In this free email series, An Advent Companion, sent every Sunday as we light a new Advent candle, you will learn:

  • More about Jesus’ nativity story… 
  • How Caesar Augustus played an important role… 
  • What it might have been like to be a shepherd in the fields of Bethlehem… 
  • More about the challenges facing the Holy Family…
  • How you can be like the Magi in offering your gifts to Jesus…
  • And much, much more…
