Daily Reflections and Prayers for Advent

Daily Reflections and Prayers for Advent

'This Advent I invite you to set out on a pilgrimage - a journey towards a renewed and deeper encounter with God - something active, not simply read about, so there will be things to do each day. Let us set out together and may God be with us on the road.'

Each year at Advent we are invited to revisit the stories of those who looked forward over the centuries to the coming of Christ. Travelling through the days and weeks, we recall the trials they faced and the goals they eventually reached. In this book, we are invited to reflect upon our own personal journey towards God in the course of our lives, and review our progress as the year draws to an end.

Beginning with the first Sunday of Advent and travelling towards the birth of Christ at Christmas, the material for each day is divided into four parts: A gift to ask God for, A reflection for the road, Scripture to accompany you, and Words for the Journey.

Let this book be your most rewarding companion to the season of Advent!

An Advent Pilgrimage, 1501403, 9781848676435
Pilgrimage as metaphor is nicely substantiated by reference to the literal pilgrimages of Jesuit novices Review by Philip Welsh (Church Times)
Star Rating
Paul Nicholson is a Jesuit, and An Advent Pilgrimage finds a place within the Ignatian tradition on self-examination and spiritual exercises. Under the overarching metaphor of pilgrimage, each day contains a gift to ask for, a reflection for the road, a verse or two of scripture to accompany you, and a prayer that supplies words for the journey. Each week gives a succession of journeying themes such as homesickness, mountain tops, short cuts, and hospitality, and figures from the Advent to Epiphany story are in-listed as companions.
Pilgrimage as metaphor is nicely substantiated by reference to the literal pilgrimages of Jesuit novices, and proves a many-sided image for the journey of faith, as distinct from the race of life. I question whether "metanoia means literally to turn around," but I did enjoy the prayer swallowed in its own bibliography "loving God...I make my own words or Dag Hammerskjold..."
