At Holy Spirit Verona we share in three weeks of "Pre-Advent."
This is the three Sundays between All Saints and Advent 1. During this time we strongly encouraged you to take an intentional “pause” before the waiting and preparing of Advent. Advent used to be seven weeks, up until the 7th century, and there is a small movement within the Church to return to that (see www.theadventproject.org
). Many of the scripture readings and prayers post All Saints give a hint or leaning towards Advent, so Father Jerry says... why not just go there.
