The Advent Wreath & the Life to Come


What is the meaning of the Advent wreath, and how does it point us to the life to come? Fr Richard draws on the parable of the Prodigal Son and writings of Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI to offer his reflections on Heaven, Hell, Purgatory & the Advent wreath.



This reflection is read by Fr Richard Leonard SJ from his book “What Are We Waiting For? Finding Meaning in Advent & Christmas” published by Paulist Press 2014. You can purchase a copy via Garratt Publishing, or any good bookstore.
