Preparing for Christmas

Filed under: Advent,Liturgical Calendar — December 4, 2007 @ 10:51 pm

From Abbot Gueranger’s The Liturgical Year, volume 1:

But if the exterior practice of penance which formerly sanctified the season of Advent, have been, in the western Church, so gradually relaxed as to have become now quite obsolete except in monasteries, the general character of the liturgy of this holy time has not changed; and it is by their zeal in following its spirit, that the faithful will prove their earnestness in preparing for Christmas.
