By Candlelight, By Starlight. – Advent Devotional 2021
Product Details –
In a few short weeks we will set out on our annual Advent pilgrimage to Bethlehem. How will
we make this sacred journey to the nativity, to the incarnation? First by candlelight, as we gather
around the glow of our Advent wreaths. And then by starlight, as we follow the Star of
Bethlehem with the magi, on our way to the manger for Epiphany. In this devotional we will
walk together through the four weeks of Advent, singing the O Antiphons in the final days
before Christmas, and then we’ll keep going, celebrating the twelve days of Christmas until we
reach Epiphany, to lay our gifts down before the Christ child.
We will walk alongside six incredible saints as we go, one per week, highlighting the beautiful
diversity of the Kingdom of God. We will journey with St. Hildegard von Bingen through
twelfth-century Germany, with St. Juan Diego through sixteenth-century Mexico, with Blessed
Rani Maria through twentieth-century India, with St. Francis of Assisi through thirteenth-century
Italy, with Venerable Satoko Kitahara through twentieth-century Japan, and with Venerable
Pierre Toussaint through nineteenth-century Haiti and America. The saints and the incarnation
remind us that God is always present, in every place, in every age of history. Emmanuel. God
Each week of Advent and Christmastide follows the same format: a reflection on the life or
writings of the saints, a Scripture taken from the daily mass readings, and two meditative prayer
suggestions for deepening your experience of this holy season. There is space for journaling, but
please feel free to use this devotional however is most nourishing for you.
Though the darkness surrounds us in these cold winter days, the light of Christ within us is
growing. Come, by candlelight and by starlight, and let’s begin our journey.
