This Advent, lead your family closer to Christ as you prepare for the Lord’s coming at Christmas. Engage with the Old Testament patriarchs and prophets who are the branches in Jesus’ family tree and come to understand fully how, in Christ, this family history becomes the history of our salvation. As you explore Jesus’ fascinating ancestry, you’ll see how God’s plan of salvation unfolds from Adam and Eve, through the Old Testament prophets, to the birth of Christ, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and the sacraments of the Church. The devotion in practice takes five to fifteen minutes per day depending on family needs and style. Each day features the following: Biblical passage or story illustrating the theme; Traditional prayer to enrich the devotion; Brief, engaging meditation with questions for discussion and “Dig Deeper” section for real-life application. Paper.
