For me the advent season is an opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas: the celebration of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.  So many things in our society now pull us away from this true meaning of Christmas.  Advent helps me to put this season into perspective. It provides me a time to reflect and to prioritize what is important to me.  During Advent I really enjoy the lighting of the Advent Wreath.  The symbols of each candle, hope, peace, love and joy, are a reminder of the gifts God gave us with the birth of his son.  The final candle, the Christ candle reminds me that Christ is the light of the world.
