Advent calendar on the web a daily reminder about faith

December 7, 2011


Young adult Catholics — and the young at heart, too — know as a website that feeds their spiritual hunger. For Advent the Paulist Fathers-founded site has a feature worth sharing.

It’s an online Advent Calendar with a worthwhile daily message. Today’s — Dec. 7 — includes a quote from actress Audrey Hepburn: “Giving is living. If you stop wanting to give, there’s nothing more to live for.” The very brief page includes what BustedHalo is calling a “microchallenge” — the Dec. 7 one is a prompt to find a charity in one’s neighborhood and make a commitment to volunteer there regularly in the coming new year.

Do yourself a favor and click on Dec. 4 and the photo of Harry Potter. There’s a great quote from the Sorcerer’s Stone and a thoughtful microchallenge.
