Day Twenty Three: A Catholic Family Advent


The angel replied, “I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to bring you this good news.”

— Luke 1:19


St. Augustine said that a person who sings “prays twice.” If that’s the case, then we do an awful lot of praying in our house. My son, Alex, is constantly singing. One time I asked him why he sings all the time and he simply said, “Because it makes me happy.” That’s a good enough reason for me.

Talk Together

What is your favorite Christmas song? What do you like about it?


O Lord, we sing your praises for all the good you have brought to our lives.


Does anything say Christmas more than caroling? Gather family and friends and head out in your neighborhood to spread some Christmas cheer through song. When you are done, return home for some hot chocolate.
