Advent Prayers

From Pope Francis: 

“Advent has a special charm, it makes us experience deeply the meaning of history.”

“In Advent we rediscover the beauty of all being on a journey … across the paths of time.”

“The season of Advent restores … a hope which does not disappoint for it is founded on God’s Word. A hope which does not disappoint, simply because the Lord never disappoints! … Let us think about and feel this beauty.”

“Let us allow ourselves to be guided by [Mary this Advent], she who is mother, a mamma and knows how to guide us. Let us allow ourselves to be guided by her during this season of active waiting and watchfulness.”
