Do you and your family have special traditions for Advent? This blog post from USCCB's For Your Marriage website may give you some ideas. 


"Know that the LORD is God, 

he made us, we belong to him, 

we are his people, the flock he shepherds." (Psalm 100:3)


Advent is a special time to be with loved ones and share the season's traditions together. Say a prayer for family commitment today.


Make a list of traditions, old and new, you would like to do this Advent. Make a schedule and stick to it!
