The Jesse Tree
Arts & Faith: Advent
In the northern hemisphere the winter solstice is celebrated by many people because of the happy coincidence of the celebration of the birth of Jesus with the significant change of the seasons marked by the winter solstice…Just as the light of the sun begins once more to grow stronger at the winter solstice, so in our Advent prayers we greet the new light of Christ at his birth and ask for that light to increase in our lives.
