Advent Resources

In November we begin to prepare our hearts to celebrate Christ’s birth anew during Advent, which begins on November 29th this year.

This Advent let the example of Pope Francis inspire you in your Christian faith as he models the humility of Jesus Christ. The Printery House offers a soft cover booklet, Living Advent with Joy and Peace, in which Pope Francis’ words are a starting point for prayer. Each day includes a suggested Scripture reading, most often from the day’s Mass.


In Advent and Christmas Wisdom from Pope Francis you can reflect on the pope’s teachings, accompanied by Scripture, prayer, and action.


Lighting the candles of the Advent wreath is a beautiful and meaningful tradition of the Christmas season. A candle is lit on each of the four Sundays preceding Christmas. Three candles are purple and one is rose or pink. The first candle represents hope; the second candle, peace; the pink candle represents joy, and the final candle signifies love. The Printery House offers several beautiful Advent wreaths to add deeper meaning to your home devotions during Advent.
