Adore: A Guided Advent Journal for Prayer and Meditation

Adore: A Guided Advent Journal for Prayer and Meditation
Burns, Fr John
$10.95

You have a choice this Advent: Get caught up in the annual rush of shopping, decorating, and parties or slow down and take a few minutes each day to remember who this season is really about--Jesus.

In Adore, popular author and speaker Fr. John Burns and illustrator Valerie Delgado of Pax.Valerie will help you reclaim the sacred sense of longing and joyful hope at the heart of Advent, focusing on a new theme each week--vigilance, preparation, nearness, and Emmanuel--that you can relate to your own life.

Each day you'll journey deeper into the meaning of Advent with:

  • a scripture- and liturgy-based meditation,
  • stunning art specially created for this book,
  • reflection questions,
  • a prayer, and
  • journaling space.
  • Adore is perfect for both individual and group use.

    Christmas Oplatki Bread (Donations to Monastery Bl Sacrament)

    Christmas Oplatki Bread (Donations to Monastery Bl Sacrament)
    $4.00

    The Oplatki tradition started in Poland during Early Christian times. This Christmas Custom began with a simple white wafer, baked from flour and water. The wafers are wonderfully designed to display Christmas images, such as the Nativity. 

    The Oplatki are enjoyed by families, typically right before the Christmas Eve meal. The entire family will gather around the table with the Oplatek.  Generally the eldest member of the family will begin the ritual by breaking off a piece of the wafer and passing it to another family member with a blessing.  This blessing can simply consist of what you desire for your loved one in the upcoming year – whether it be good health, success, or happiness. The purpose of this act is primarily to express ones unconditional love and forgiveness for each member of his or her family.

    The Oplatki Christmas wafer shadows the Eucharistic meal that Catholics participate in at each Mass.  Just as we share in the Eucharist as one family in Christ and receive Christ’s love through the Eucharist, the Oplatki allows for one’s immediate family to come together and share the love they have for one another.  This symbolism is deepened by the fact that the name of the town where Jesus Christ was born, Bethlehem, means "House of Bread," which makes the Oplatki tradition an especially beautiful way to celebrate the charity and unity so characteristic of the Christmas season.
