Reflections for the Season of Advent 2022

Catholic tradition sets aside “Advent” time, beginning the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day and concluding Christmas Eve. Advent, derived from Latin, means “arrival” or “coming.” Through December’s ever shorter and colder days, Christians await in hope the Light of the World, the One whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.

As we begin a new Advent Season, we invite you to enter into the "season of waiting" with this collection - a daily reflection from contributors throughout the Edgewood College community. 

The reflections are based on Advent scripture readings in the Common Christian Lectionary. Because of space constraints, only a brief portion of the selected Scripture is included.

May you find in these pages a source of hope and inspiration throughout the season.
