Advent Meditation

If anyone is remotely interested, the Owl can be seen on the Diocese of Burlington's website, with a little Advent meditation - it is on the right, with the little movie screen about Advent.

I watched your Advent meditation on the Diocesan website and enjoyed it very much. It makes me wonder how we lost those twelve days of Christmas. Was it because of the English Puritan banning of any Christmas celebrations? As the daughter of Cuban immigrants, we never celebrated the epiphany and swallowed the American way of Christmas whole (did manage to hang onto the midnight meal of roast pork though - yum!).

Thanks, it's actually here, at VermontCatholic.

When I was in college I had introduced a Baptist suitemate of mine to the custom of Advent. I had the candles and the round candle holder which held the sconces, and a few green boughs had been liberated from the abundance on campus. I lit those Advent candles every night, especially when other came over for pudding, etc.

]Plese Mrs. K. -- give him a digital camera for Christmas, and make sure there's a memory card with it!]
