Don't waste another Advent! Keep Christ in Christmas this year by turning to this slim volume of daily Advent meditations by Bishop Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet, one of the greatest homilists in the history of the Church. Carefully selected to lift your soul to God in those hectic days before Christmas, these forty daily meditations will keep you mindful of the real meaning of Christmas while affording you an admirable distillation of the doctrines and piety of our Holy Catholic Church. With the help of Bishop Bossuet - and the sense of God's grandeur and love that permeates his every word - all through the rush toward Christmas you'll stay mindful of the holy words of Isaiah foretelling the birth of our saviour; you'll find yourself marvelling at the Annunciation and the Visitation; you'll rejoice in anticipation of the coming birth of Jesus; and, finally, you'll look forward to kneeling with St. Joseph and the Blessed Virgin in silent adoration of the incarnate Son of God. This year, you won't (as so often happens) arrive at Midnight Mass distracted, exhausted, and frazzled, having neglected your Advent devotions and your ordinary prayers, too. Instead, you'll find yourself stepping lightly into church, ready and eager to adore the newborn King, your soul what it should be: a fit dwelling place for the Redeemer. "So many Catholics, myself chief among them, find themselves at Midnight Mass feeling wholly unready. Expand your soul with these brilliant meditations lovingly translated by Christopher Blum. Bishop Bossuet's graceful simplicity and extraordinary depth will prepare in your heart the way of the Lord, and as you contemplating the Child in the manger, the joy of His Incarnation will be yours." -- Christopher Check, Catholic Answers
