[HEADLINE] Advent Guide Series – Fourth Sunday of Advent

This Fourth Sunday of Advent, we reflect on the radical obedience and generosity of the Virgin Mary. When the Angel Gabriel announces that she will bear the Son of God, she replies simply and humbly, “I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done to me according to His will.”

As we continue to prepare for Jesus’s birth, what lessons can we learn from our Blessed Mother? How can we model our own lives after the humble, selfless life of Mary? What does it mean to truly live the Christian virtue of obedience today? Explore these questions and more in this Sunday’s Advent Guide.

As a reminder, these weekly guides are intended to assist you in your personal and family prayer each Sunday of Advent. This Sunday, let us – like Mary – freely and willingly embrace God’s plan for us. Let us place our trust completely in Him, as we prepare our hearts to celebrate His Son’s coming on Christmas.
