Prayerfully discover the meaning of Christmas with this collection of meditations on the Scriptures and prayers of the Advent season. Reflecting upon the Sunday Gospels, Carl E Olson highlights their depth and helps us to apply the Scriptures to our own lives.

Olson continues this Advent meditation by offering a line-by-line contemplation on the Hail Mary, illuminating the significance of each word so as to deepen our experience of this integral prayer. By praying the Hail Mary mindfully, we discover how to walk through Advent with Mary, ready to welcome her Son at Christmas.

“A bracing and substantive companion through the Advent season. Carl Olson draws from the richness of Catholic tradition to help the reader know that this Advent journey is not made alone: we're part of God's people, present and past, who have found light in the darkness, hope and the promise of peace in Christ.” – Amy Welborn, author of The Words We Pray: Discovering the Richness of Traditional Catholic Prayers.
