Happy Advent!

The generative light of the Spirit enfolds you
Escorting the noble Christ, mirror image of the Father.
The door of the sacred house was firmly barred
But now your Prince steps o’er the threshold.Holy Mother and Child canvas print

This is my own translation of the second stanza of Verbum Salutis Omnium, a 10th century Advent hymn. It will appear on my Christmas cards this year.

Advent is easily my favorite time of year. Christmas itself can be overwhelming, but I love the gentle buildup of hope that defines Advent.

There’s still time to purchase art, such as this canvas print. It would make a lovely gift or a beautiful decoration for your home.
