2022 Advent Penitential Service

The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming at the end of time and to the anniversary of Our Lord’s birth on Christmas. From the earliest days of the Church, people have been fascinated by Jesus’ promise to come back. But the scripture readings during Advent tell us not to waste our time with predictions. Our Advent readings call us to be alert and ready, not weighted down and distracted by the cares of this world (Lk 21:34-36).

As we prepare for Christmas, many Advent practices focus on a time of preparation: making order, quieting and disciplining ourselves and especially our hearts to prepare for Christ’s arrival at Christmas. The Sacrament of Penance enhances our Advent practices, relieving our hearts of some of the burdens we carry, and opens us to receive God’s Mercy.
