SACRED SPACE: ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS 2019-2020
The Irish JesuitsThe Advent Gospel made plain
This pocket-sized book of Advent reflections comes from ‘The Irish Jesuits’ - no individual author is named. In contrast to the Anglican reflections, Sacred Space concentrates on gospel readings, and provides simple but devout reflections designed to be ‘accessible, engaging and meaningful to daily life’. In line with the book’s Catholic provenance, an ‘Advent Retreat’ is appended to the daily readings, enabling readers to spend more time in prayer, while considering the wider issues of our lives with God. The prologue of John’s gospel is used in this section which provides an ideal spiritual preparation for the Christmas season.
