Fr. John Burns offers a video introduction to ADORE, a new Advent journal from Ave Maria Press. Join us for weekly reflections during the season.

You have a choice this Advent: Get caught up in the annual rush of shopping, decorating, and parties or slow down and take a few minutes each day to remember who this season is really about — Jesus.

In Adore, popular author and speaker Fr. John Burns and illustrator Valerie Delgado of Pax.Valerie will help you reclaim the sacred sense of longing and joyful hope at the heart of Advent, focusing on a new theme each week — vigilance, preparation, nearness, and Emmanuel — that you can relate to your own life.

Join us each Sunday for a brief video reflection on the journal's weekly themes.

Adore: A Guided Advent Journal for Prayer and Meditation is available from Ave Maria Press, your local Catholic bookstore, and on all major digital platforms.
