The Advent Wreath is the most popular of many family activities that help create the Advent sense of preparation, penance and anticipation. This ancient tradition is full of symbolism and meaning: Its circular shape symbolizes eternity Its evergreens are symbolic of life, and Its candles represent the light of Christ. A brief exploration and meditation about the Advent wreath as we light the candles each day offers the opportunity to explore - as a family - the meaning of Advent and how we can prepare for the great gift of Christmas.

Catherine Fournier, wife, convert to the Faith and mother of six, has been writing and speaking about the Catholic culture of the home for more than 25 years. She is the co-founder of www.domestic-church.com, the largest Catholic family web site on the Internet and author of the popular "In the Domestic Church" family resource series. Her work has appeared in Canticle magazine, the Nazareth Journal, Catholic Parent and others. Dynamic, talented and knowledgeable, Catherine draws on the writings of Pope John Paul II, especially Familiaris Consortio and the Theology of the Body, her experience as a youth and adult educator and - last but not least - the raising and educating of her six children in the Faith to create effective and inspiring faith resources for families. “As Christ is the Incarnation, our Catholic faith is incarnational,” explains Catherine. “It is brought to life, incarnated, both through and in our daily lives. By this I don't mean our homes should become church-like, I mean we should be aware that family life has a larger purpose and dimension than we may realize in the midst of daily life.”
