Questions of Faith: How should we live Advent?

2012-12-18 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) As Christians, how should we live the Advent season? How is it different from other times in the Liturgical Year? What is the meaning and origins of Advent? And even more simply, why are the Advent candles a different colour?

These are the questions, big and small, that our very own official from the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Monsignor John Kennedy, answers in this special episode of our series for the Year of Faith. Listen:

Once again a reminder to all of our readers and listeners that you can send in you own questions about the faith to Mons. Kennedy by posting them or private messaging them to our Vatican Radio – English Section Facebook page and tuning in each Tuesday for the answers to your Questions of Faith.
