Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus! – with Fr. Michael Joncas [Online]

With Fr. Michael Joncas

December 1, 2020

The liturgical season of Advent in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite has two distinct foci: the mystery of the coming of Christ at the end of history (Parousia) and the mystery of the coming of Christ in history (Christmas). We will explore how these foci are expressed in the lectionary readings and hymns of the day for the Sundays of Advent of Year B as well as Advent texts, ceremonies and customs from Advent in other rites. Immersion in these texts and rites should help us develop Advental spirituality, living in the tension between already and not yet.

This event will take place online via Zoom.
