Advent Tree Calendar Week 1½

Dec 7, 2011

The words on the calendar are Advent words–words from Isaiah, Matthew, Luke, Revelation… and words from traditional prayers of the Church.

An eleven-year old friend noticed the word “kindle” on the tree. “Oh, a Kindle!” she said. “Is that what you want for Christmas?” Well, actually, I wouldn’t mind. But more what I had in mind was this prayer:

Come, O Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful,
and kindle in them the fire of Your love.
