Item description for Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St. Francis of Assisi (Advent And Christmas Wisdom) by John Kruse...

Overview
It's easy to get lost in the bustle of Christmas shopping and holiday parties, losing sight of God. Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St. Francis of Assisi gives readers a momentary cease in the chaos, allowing daily meditation. It is essential in today's postmodern culture to remember the true purpose of Advent--the preparation for and celebration of the coming of Jesus. Each day's selection offers a new insight from one of the most beloved saints, St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis serves as an appropriate model of virtue during the time of year when it is easy to become caught up in the materialized aspects of the holiday. Through his words, we are reminded of the simplicity in poverty, the reverence of God's word, of showing gratitude, and practicing forgiveness. Along with the words of St. Francis are daily Scripture readings and prayers that mirror his philosophy. After reflecting, readers will find an Advent action--something simple they can do to keep the words and prayers alive with them throughout the day. Christians looking for a way to energize their holiday practices will cherish this guide to refocusing on the true "reason for the season," the birth of Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St. Francis of Assisi?

Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St. Francis of Assisi  Dec 31, 2009
We purchased five copies of this book. One for us and the others for friends. We all believed that it helped us enjoy one of the holiest Advents in a long time. One friend has made a committment to join us as a Secular Franciscan after using the book. Highly recommended for those who want to do more during Advent than shopping.
 
Excellent Advent Companion  Jan 6, 2009
This book is an excellent companion for the Advent and Christmas seasons. The readings are short, but are insightful enough to provide the reader with spiritual guidance for the day. The daily actions at the end of each reading are also very helpful and simple to complete, giving the reader the opportunity to actually put into practice the meaning of each day's lesson.

I take communion to nursing homes, and I carried this book with me to read to the elderly who are unable to attend Mass, and they also loved it. So, this is a book that is useful and helpful for anyone looking for more meaning out of this season than just giving gifts. The prayers of Saint Francis are paired with Bible passages, and at the end of the book are methods to use the readings in groups, like for families or with friends. I found this all very useful throughout the holidays.
 
Secular Franciscan's opinion  Dec 26, 2008
This is an excellent bood for the Advent and Christmas seasons especially for a Franciscan such as myself. Anyone can enhance their Advent and Christmas celebration with this book.
