On That Day: An Advent Calendar from Holy Cross

Saint Joseph Memorial Chapel with advent wreath

Advent 2018

"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)

This year the College of the Holy Cross is excited to offer a daily Advent reflection series, “On That Day: An Advent Calendar from Holy Cross.” 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 Advent resource 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.

"On That Day" is being offered as a daily email series. Those who subscribe will be sent an email each morning containing a reflection, for each day of Advent (Advent begins on Dec. 2, 2018 and ends on Dec. 24.).
