Advent

Advent
Campus Ministry

Advent means "a coming" or "an arrival," and it consists of the four weeks leading up to the birth of Christ. But what is the purpose of Advent? This week, alumni and seminarians for the Archdiocese of St. Louis, Nolan Shannon '18 and Adam Gordon '17, explain to us how we anticipate the incarnation of God into the world. The Israelites longed for God to rescue them from captivity, but little did they know that they would be receiving much more, the ability to have life with God and share in his divinity. God wants us to experience everlasting joy in a life with him, so we must lay our burdens down and seek him. How will you prepare your heart this Advent season?
