Advent is a time to get in touch with our longings and deepest desires. It is a time to give new birth to the soul as we wait in hope and prepare to celebrate the reality of Christ's presence among us--here and everywhere, now and for all time. Popular spiritual writer Fr. Ron Rolheiser leads readers through the seasons of Advent and Christmas with provocative insights and daily reflections on the Incarnation. All who seek escape from the commercial distractions of the holiday season will find a welcome spiritual retreat in the pages of Daybreaks. These daily reflections open the door to the wonder and beauty of Advent and Christmas and lead to the true peace that only Christ can give.
