Advent Calendar

Advent Calendar: Biblical and Liturgical

– Father Johann Roten, S.M.

This Advent calendar is based on Scripture and the Liturgy:

1. During the first fourteen days of Advent (Dec. 1-14), we will explore what the Scriptures say about fourteen women of the Old Testament and their parallels to Mary.

2. Then we will look more closely at Mary as chosen daughter of Israel, at the Liturgy of the Annunciation and Visitation (Dec. 15-16).

3. Finally, we will concentrate on Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, as the Catholic Church anticipates his birthday in the so-called O'Antiphons (Dec. 17-25).

All About Mary includes a variety of content, much of which reflects the expertise, interpretations and opinions of the individual authors and not necessarily of the Marian Library or the University of Dayton. Please share feedback or suggestions with
