In this video, Jeff Cavins explains the readings for the First Sunday of Advent. These readings prepare us for the coming of the Lord at Christmas, as well as his Second Coming at the end of time. In this holy season, Catholics are reminded to prepare our hearts to receive the Lord; so that we will be ready to welcome him not only at Christmas, but at every moment in our lives.
