Let us pray together and prepare our hearts during the holy season of Advent to better welcome the Christ Child at Christmas.
Here you’ll find details about our quarterly devotionals – Living Faith and Living Faith Kids. Each offers short moments of daily, liturgical inspiration for Catholics adults and children to grow in prayer and faithful living.
Join us by sharing your faith journey with other Living Faith readers in the comments section on each devotion of the day. Add your prayer intentions at the Prayer Request Center. Or sign up in the box below to receive our free reflection for Sundays sent to your email inbox.
Have a blessed Advent!
