Award-winning author and preaching expert Ann M. Garrido will help you focus on the mysteries of the Incarnation with daily gospel-based devotions from the First Sunday of Advent through Christmas Day. These simple, yet powerful devotions will draw you to the quiet places of your heart so you can more fully prepare for the real meaning of Christmas and Christ’s second coming.

In Daily Devotions for Advent 2016, Ann Garrido will lead you to prayer, reflection, and spiritual growth rooted in the gospel reading for each day of Advent through Christmas Day. Her insight will help you explore the great story of salvation in Christ and its meaning in your life. Each two-page devotion offers brief Bible verses, prayers, incisive reflection on the Word of God, and a specific, easy-to-do exercise as you prayerfully prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

The Living Gospel series of devotionals for Lent and Advent offer spiritual insight and practical wisdom from popular Catholic preachers, speakers, and homilists. A new voice each season and a simple, five-step format invite Catholics to hear and embrace the living Word of God.

"Brief, powerful devotions."

"These brief, powerful devotions speak to one's heart and offer help for contemplating one's own spirituality and for growing as disciples of Jesus Christ. The inspiring prayers and stories of faith through adversity encourage us and direct us toward living a life rooted in the Gospel."
