Celebrate Advent with St. Jude

Thanks to Fr Brummell for this wonderful site!

Thank you for joining us in prayer this Advent season. We look forward to praying with and for you during these holy days. St. Jude is there for us in our Advent preparation for the birth of Christ. As Christmas approaches, lighting the Advent wreath reminds us that God’s love for us is strong.
The Claretians will be praying for you this Advent season. We invite you to send your special intentions for Advent to the National Shrine of St. Jude today. Our daily Meditations for the final week of Advent are below.

December 21st - Fourth Sunday of Advent

Every candle now shines on our Advent wreath. The days of Christmas have arrived. As we say “Merry Christmas,” let us truly offer goodwill toward others.
"Prepare the way for the coming of the Lord!"
Prayer to St. Jude for Advent
Lord Jesus, your power is infinite; your glory, everlasting. Quietly you come into the world as an innocent child. Ready my heart for the miracle of your birth.

Bring light to the world, as we wait silently for your warmth in the coldness of the night. Bless me with patience and faithful discipline to prayerfully prepare to welcome and greet you.

St. Jude, Patron of Hope, pray that Christ’s holiness will flow into me this Advent. May Christmas joy and burning love take root in me and grow to carry the joy beyond me and inspire hope in others. (send an Advent petition) Amen.
