Daily Prayer for Advent 1

The Daily Prayer Page has been updated to include the readings and prayers for the days that precede and follow the First Sunday of Advent.  Also included are prayers and readings for the Festival of Andrew, Apostle (Nov 30), and prayers for the commemorations of Francis Xavier, Missionary (Dec 3) and John of Damascus, Theologian (Dec 4).

I’ve made a slight change to how the readings are listed on the Daily Prayer Page.  I now refer to each day by its relation to Sunday, rather than the date.  So for example, the readings on Thursday, November 29 are listed as Thursday before the First Sunday of Advent.  Though cumbersome at first, this change emphasizes that the readings and prayers are in reference to Sunday, not to the specific date.

I’ve also changed the formatting for commemorations and festivals.  The readings and prayers for commemorations and festivals are now indented and listed below the Sunday-based daily readings.

Let us pray.
