On That Day: An Advent Calendar from Holy Cross

"ON THAT DAY, the branch of the Lord will be luster and glory and the fruit of the earth will be honor and splendor…” (Isaiah 4:2)

And so we begin this liturgical season of Advent. During these four weeks, we will hear the words of the ancient prophets — including Isaiah — who spoke to the people of their time. Wearied by the realities of their day, many of these people yielded to a sense of despair. The prophets, inspired by God, cried out messages of hope, urging the people to be faithful in their relationship with God and preparing them for that day when their God would visit them with peace.

We hope that this digital Advent calendar will help you to see more deeply and to hear more clearly the experience of Advent's promise. Be assured of our prayers during the holy season.
