I love the periods of penitence and preparation we experience in our Liturgy. This is Advent, and it is a beautiful time of preparation for the celebration of the Birth of Christ. Did you know that Advent music and Christmas music are actually not the same hymns? Here is one of the beautiful traditional antiphons sung during Advent.
Dear Lord, thank You for the beauty in the Liturgy and in the hymns of Your Church. Amen.
