The order of the themes for the weeks in this Advent reflection are based on this saying I have heard as I have returned to Appalachia:
It is in a quiet moment of Peace that Hope is born that Joy springs forth and that Love is freed.
The title of the reflections this year is Readying Ourselves to Receive and the writings here proclaim the wisdom of contemplation, the presence of God on Earth, and thoughts on preparation for the coming of the Light.

This year’s Advent season is short – December 3 through 24. In this set of reflections, 18 oblates and 4 sisters share their experience and wisdom with Peace, Hope, Joy, and Love. May the writings here free your heart to share the Light.

With grateful hearts we offer these writings and reflections to the Glory of God in pursuit of peace,
and in gratitude to our extended family of SSJD Associates, Oblates, and many friends, with us in fellowship on our paths
