What are some of the tried and true spiritual practices that I can commit to doing this Advent so I am cooperating with the Lord in developing and strengthening my spiritual muscles?

  • Prayer – Perhaps go to Mass once during the weekdays.
  • Fasting – Maybe only have desert on the weekends.
  • Alms – Make a donation that hurts.

Advent is a time of spiritual preparation. Arrive at Christmas ready to have the Lord send you where he wants you to go.
