Each day offers a simple, five-step blueprint with brief gospel verses, prayers, incisive reflection on the Word of God, and a specific challenge for ongoing spiritual growth.

"What a great way to prepare for Christmas!"

"What a great way to prepare for Christmas! Sr. Terry Rickard, O.P., blends wonderful stories with the Advent gospels, inviting us to remember that the Word becomes flesh in us and around us every day of our lives. The daily reminder to act on what we have just prayed is most helpful—not just a nice idea but a way of living."

Mary Ann McLaughlin
Director of Spiritual Life
Archdiocese of Boston

"Practical and insightful prayers and reflections."

"Dominican sister Terry Rickard’s delightful Advent devotions would surely bring a smile to the lips of St. Dominic and St. Catherine. Her practical and insightful prayers and reflections tap the deep vein of her Dominican tradition, which calls her to hand on the rich fruit of her contemplation. I consider it a great blessing that Sr. Terry will be our spiritual companion as we enter this beautiful season of grace and growth."
