Advent points to a mystery and truth that God visits human hearts - unexpected and uninvited. It is a season of awakening, of waking up to Christ who draws near to each of us in surprising, unpredictable, and unbelievable ways. Whether we feel stressed, overwhelmed, unworthy, or complacent, Christ visits us.

In this busy season of shopping, holiday parties, and school deadlines, gift yourself with moments of pause. Let yourself be drawn and accompanied by short, honest, and heartfelt reflections on the readings of the day written by members of the Christus Ministries family. Click here for a sample.

Give yourself the space to notice the Surprising One who longs to come closer to you, bearing greater life.
