Praying in Advent offers thoughts and prayers for a short daily prayer-time during Advent. It is a booklet for the busy person who wants to get started with some reflection based on a phrase from the gospel of the day. The reflection and prayers try to link daily concerns with the gospel of Jesus Christ. But as the test of Advent in the end is not what have we done for Advent, but what Advent has done for others through us, each page suggests a possible action for the day, linking prayer and action for others with Advent.
