The coronavirus touched us all with unique moments of sadness and anxiety, of loneliness and frustration, of joy, inspiration, togetherness and generosity. 2020 unexpectedly changed us, our families, workplaces and society.
The pandemic wilderness from which we are emerging has left us making sense of our good and not-so-good experiences. For some, this will be a first Christmas without a loved family member, friend or colleague.
Because 2020 was “different”, so is Advent Extra. Its daily reflections, articles and children’s pages are a conscious, heartfelt effort of Redemptorist Publications and its writers to offer reassurance and hope on a unique Advent journey towards Christmas. May Jesus be born in our hearts!
