Silence and Other Surprising Invitations of Advent, by Enuma Okoro

November 15, 2012

Okoro deflects the usual attention from Gabriel, Mary and Joseph during Advent and puts the spotlight on Zechariah and Elizabeth instead. As John the Baptist was a forerunner of Jesus, Zecha­riah and Elizabeth are forerunners of the Holy Family. Candle lighting meditations are provided for each Sunday of Advent plus Christmas Eve.
