Thomas Merton once said, “Advent is the beginning of the end of all in us that is not yet Christ." To help us all enter into this sacred season, we are delighted to offer you a mini Advent Retreat.
For each Sunday of Advent, we will present the homily delivered by the Australian Carmelite bishop Greg Homeming. We will also offer some questions for reflection.
