With the season of Advent fast approaching I thought I’d share some resources that I’ve found on my cyber travels. As I’m quite Ignatian focussed at the moment here is a link to some lovely online Ignatian resources that might help you on your way through the exciting season ahead…
Not everyone has the time or money to spend searching for, ordering and taking delivery of an Advent devotional so sometimes the internet CAN [despite what I often think 😉 ] be a place to find God, rather than a constant distraction keeping us [me?] from Him.
Also, a fellow blogger over on ‘The Vicar’s Wife’ has produced a great post highlighting some other fabulous free resources; ‘Advent Approaches: A Couple of Reading Resources’. I can vouch for both of these as I’ve already downloaded them and had a read. Ethan and I have put the ‘Children’s Bible Reading Plan’ to good use this evening. It’s actually great for all year round, not just Advent. Pertinently, the 12 month, single use plan starts with the Nativity story in Luke’s Gospel, so very appropriate if you want to start this with your little ones now.
And finally, I’ve also found THIS for all you Kindle users for 77p. Great for all, Catholic or not, and cheaper than the printed version ‘Living Faith’ booklets you find at the back of church after Mass, as they’re usually £2 or so.
I hope you find something that suits your needs among this selection. Don’t forget that Wordlive and Pray-as-you-go will probably also offer Advent based prayer and scripture for the forthcoming season too.
Wishing you all a blessed Advent.
