Advent Evening of Reflection with Michael Joncas

The short season of Advent invites us to ponder three aspects of the coming of Jesus: history (preparation for the birth of Christ), mystery (the experience of Jesus in the liturgy) and majesty (the Parousia). During this evening of reflection, we will consider the scriptural and liturgical texts of Advent and experience the music of Advent psalms and hymns.
