ADVENT
The word “Advent” comes from the
Latin word “Adventus” which means
“coming”. The season of Advent
covers the four weeks before
Christmas. During these four weeks
we are preparing for the celebration
of the birthday of Jesus.
During Advent we are asked in the
readings at mass to prepare the way
of the Lord. Preparations are
important at Christmastime. We
prepare at home, in school and at the
church. But the most important
preparation is the preparation of our
hearts.

ADVENT
We make room for Jesus in our hearts
by loving as Jesus did, by being kind,
forgiving, sharing, caring, and being
obedient. During Advent, we can
prepare the way of the Lord by
repenting and saying sorry for our
sins.

ADVENT WREATH
The Advent Wreath is a very old
custom that originally came from
Germany. It is made of evergreens
bounded to a circle of wire. Five
candles are placed on the wreath,
four along the outside and one in the
centre. The candles along the outside
are equally spaced apart. Three of
these are purple and one is rose
coloured. The candle in the centre is
white.

ADVENT WREATH
The circle reminds us that God’s love
has no beginning and no end. The
green leaves remind us that God’s
love never changes. One candle is lit
on each Sunday of Advent. The rose
coloured candle is lit on the third
Sunday of Advent, sometimes known
as Gaudete Sunday. The white candle
in the centre of the wreath is lit at
Christmas to symbolise the birth of
Jesus.

Advent02

  • 1. ADVENT The word “Advent” comes from the Latin word “Adventus” which means “coming”. The season of Advent covers the four weeks before Christmas. During these four weeks we are preparing for the celebration of the birthday of Jesus. During Advent we are asked in the readings at mass to prepare the way of the Lord. Preparations are important at Christmastime. We prepare at home, in school and at the church. But the most important preparation is the preparation of our hearts. © Nollaig Shona 2011 www.nollaigshona.ie
  • 2. ADVENT We make room for Jesus in our hearts by loving as Jesus did, by being kind, forgiving, sharing, caring, and being obedient. During Advent, we can prepare the way of the Lord by repenting and saying sorry for our sins. © Nollaig Shona 2011 www.nollaigshona.ie

  • 4. ADVENT WREATH The Advent Wreath is a very old custom that originally came from Germany. It is made of evergreens bounded to a circle of wire. Five candles are placed on the wreath, four along the outside and one in the centre. The candles along the outside are equally spaced apart. Three of these are purple and one is rose coloured. The candle in the centre is white. © Nollaig Shona 2011 www.nollaigshona.ie
  • 5. ADVENT WREATH The circle reminds us that God’s love has no beginning and no end. The green leaves remind us that God’s love never changes. One candle is lit on each Sunday of Advent. The rose coloured candle is lit on the third Sunday of Advent, sometimes known as Gaudete Sunday. The white candle in the centre of the wreath is lit at Christmas to symbolise the birth of Jesus. © Nollaig Shona 2011 www.nollaigshona.ie
