Advent, more than any other season of the year, is rooted in the virtue of hope. ……As we ready ourselves for the joy of Christmas this year, let?s live Advent well and remember why we?re called to be joyful. In the end, Christmas is not about gifts or carols or parties, though all these things are wonderful in their place. Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ, who brings meaning and hope to a world that needs redemption. In him, and only in him, is our hope.? AN ADVENT REFLECTION, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., December 12, 2014
