SLHour Special Reflection: Advent is a Time of Hope

In this special SLHour reflection Deacon Pedro offers a antidote to doubt, despair and fear and suggests that hope is the mission of every Christian, not just during Advent, but all the time.

Exploring Christus Vivit

How do we make room for the young Church? This week Gerald Gallagher of Dublin explores Christus Vivit with us and shares some Advent reflections. Danny Torchia tells us about shock advertising, Billy has a question about Advent and we meet singer/songwriter Thomas Muglia.

SLHour: December 1, 2012

Are you struggling to make Advent different from Christmas? This week, Archbishop Prendergast of Ottawa gives us ideas on how we can prepare for each Sunday’s readings with the third edition (Year C) of his Living God’s Word series, and we also listen to music from the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles. They have a new album, not to be played during Christmas season, Advent at Ephesus. Monica Fitzgibbons, co-founder of De Montfort Music, the record label behind the album, tells us how it all came to be and Danny Torchia gives us some good PR advice on Speakers Bureaus.

They join us this week on S+L Radio to talk about their new album Harmony. Kris Dmytrenko is back from Israel (finally!) and John Michael Talbot offers a new reflection for the third week in Advent.

Last October Pope Benedict signed an Apostolic Constitution that will allow Anglicans to enter the Catholic Church – today on S+L Radio we speak to Deborah Gyapong member of the Traditional Anglican Communion about this news and we try to slow down a bit for the season of Advent.
