ADVENT Our new Christian calendar begins on ADVENT SUNDAY (27th Nov) and our readings and collects for the next 12 months will be those of Year ‘A’. Advent season is the 4 weeks preceding Christmas and is looked on, these days, as a time of anticipation and of looking forward to the arrival of Christ, here on earth! In past times the church advocated fasting during the Advent period - and it was the custom in the northern counties for widows to carry around the "Advent images", two dolls dressed to represent Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary. A halfpenny coin was expected from every one to whom these were exhibited. The liturgical colour for the Season is Purple though, on the 3rd Sunday (Gaudete Sunday) Rose may be used instead, referencing the rose used on Laetare Sunday, the 4th Sunday of Lent. The season offers the opportunity to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and to be alert for his Second Coming.
