"Are you ready for Christmas?" We hear that question a lot this time of year. Usually it means, "Did you decorate?" "Did you do your Christmas shopping?" "Have you finished baking?"
When Father Bill Quinlivan, Pastor of St. Martin of Tours and St. Thomas Aquinas parishes in South Buffalo, asks that question he means something else entirely. His new book, Coming Home to Christmas Through Advent, is about preparing spiritually for Christmas using the liturgical season set aside by the Catholic Church for the 4 weeks prior.
On this week's podcast Father Bill talks about his book, about Advent, and about getting ready for Christmas. To that end, we play a couple of Advent songs from his Christmas albums (yes, he writes and records music as well).
