Three minutes is all it takes to change your day for the better.
The rich yet uncomplicated daily reflections in Messages of Joy for Advent and Christmas 2020 will guide you from the first Sunday of Advent through Epiphany. With practical, everyday wisdom, Fr. Michael White and Tom Corcoran will help you pray for the gift of joy and prepare your heart and soul for the gift of Christ’s birth.
Each day, White and Corcoran—the authors of the bestselling and award-winning Rebuilt—offer a verse or two of scripture, a short reflection on joy, and a simple prayer prompt that will help you draw closer to God. While each devotion can be completed in as few as three minutes, you’ll reap the comfort and inspiration they bring throughout the day.

“Relevant and thoughtful.”
“For parishes that want to make disciples and not just churchgoers, equipping parishioners to grow in their relationship with God outside of the time they attend Mass is crucial. This devotional series helps do exactly that: it is relevant and thoughtful and an indispensable tool to help parishioners begin or renew a relationship with God.”
