Advent is known as “little Lent,” and prayer, alms, and sacrifices are an important part of the season. To help children participate in the true purpose of Advent (rather than treating it selfishly as a countdown to getting their presents on Christmas day), a visual teaching aid is most helpful. For each small sacrifice or good deed done by a child during Advent, a piece of straw is added into the manger or creche. On Christmas day the Baby Jesus figure is placed inside the creche, and the prayers and sacrifices symbolized by the pieces of straw have added up to prepare Him a comfortable place to rest. This visually symbolizes the room for Jesus that we have prepared in our hearts by making sacrifices and doing good deeds for others.
The day after Thanksgiving has become a cultural phenomenon called Black Friday. We've all seen those mad rushes to get the best sales of the year. While shopping is not a sin and gift-giving is a traditional and joyful part of Christmas celebrations, we as Christians should not get caught up in the materialism that drives it. Here is a prayer we wrote to help bring the right attitude of heart into our seasonal shopping this year.
Advent is the beginning of a new liturgical year for the Roman Catholic Church. On the first day of Advent, which begins this year on December 1st, the Church celebrates its New Year's Day. The date for the beginning of Advent falls each year on the Sunday closest to November 30th - the feast day of Saint Andrew the Apostle.
