Thursday of the First Week of Advent

  • St. John Damascene, priest and Doctor, whose optional memorial is observed today, defended the Church's understanding of the veneration of images. Mark his feast day by sharing and discussing your favorite religious images.
  • As you fill out your Christmas list, Consider purchasing gifts that support farmers and artisans and their families in developing countries and in low income communities in the United States.

  • Learn about the national collections for special causes that are held in the United States.  Consider making donations to these collections in the name of family members or friends instead of giving material gifts.
