Celtic Advent

The Celtic Advent begins forty days before the Nativity, that is on November 15. This corresponds with the Eastern Orthodox practice.

One way to use these forty days of reflection is to contemplate 'the ancestors of God' - people such as Ruth, the mixed race God-honourer, David the righteous king, Joseph and Mary.

In our advent retreats we will meditate on Luke's story of Elizabeth and Mary meeting, and Saint Fursey's visions of angels, demons, and the judgement of God. Why not do something similar at home?
