EFJ Project Posts New Advent Resources

 Education for Justice has posted two new Advent resource series at  A daily calendar explores the signs of the times, offering reflections that connect Advent scriptures to the many crises facing the human family, along with prayers and action ideas. Weekly reflections on the Sunday gospels also are available, providing links to daily scripture readings as well as spiritual exercises and action links. These reflections, along with our new "Mother of the Living Gospel" prayer, echo the words and spirit of Pope Francis' new exhortation, "The Joy of the Gospel."
