Advent Reflections from FORMED

Dear Lord, help me to seek you first during this Advent journey so that there will be room in my heart for the Christ Child this Christmas. May my small sacrifices of a daily spiritual exercise and fasting help me to grow in my relationship with you.

Three Practical Ways to Enhance your Experience this Advent:

1) Create a space for remembrance

2) Add on a daily resolution to orient your life towards Christ

3) Give something up and offer that space for Christ to fill with His grace
