St. Jude Catholic Parish - South Bend, Indiana

True Reformers
“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,” or, at least that’s the assumption based on that familiar holiday song. But what does that look like at your house? Most of us anticipate the great sales at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving, string lights on the outside of our house, and decorate the inside of our homes. But how exactly are we preparing our hearts for the greatest gift we’ve ever been given?

During this Advent season, let us take time to prepare our hearts for the coming of our Lord. To help you, check out the following reflections, books, and videos on FORMED.

For the whole Family: Take 6 minutes to listen and watch a reflection of the Sunday Readings in “Opening the Word.”

For Children:  Watch the children’s film “Nicholas,” the man who became Santa.
For Teens: Take time to reflect this Advent season with the YDisciple Advent series.

For Adults: Take time to reflect this Advent season with the book “COME, LORD JESUS” a mediation on the Art of waiting.
