U.S. Bishops' Website Offers Online Family Resources for Advent and Christmas

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops continues the tradition of providing online resources for the Advent and Christmas seasons with daily suggestions for prayer, reflection and action. The content is presented in a clickable calendar format, with each date opening a page of suggestions and links.

The calendars feature audio retreats in English and Spanish for the four Sundays of Advent and the three Sundays of the Christmas season. The retreats were produced by Franciscan Media and made possible by the bishops' Catholic Communication Campaign. The half-hour audio retreats feature music, a Scripture reflection and a question-and-answer from a different bishop each week.

The calendar is interspersed with excerpts from Pope Francis' audiences and homilies from the first year of his papacy and observations on Catholic doctrine and practices from the For Your Marriage website's "Catholic 101" series. Other resources highlighted on the calendars include a Festival of Lesson and Carols podcast, a list of recommended holiday-themed movies from the USCCB, and prayers and blessings from the USCCB publication Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers.
