'Christ Comes in History, Mystery & Majesty:' Reflections on Advent with His Eminence Cardinal Timothy Dolan
By Michelle Laque Johnson

New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan's Advent reflections have proved to be so popular with viewers that we asked him to provide us with some all-new reflections for Advent 2012. "Christ Comes in History, Mystery & Majesty" will debut on EWTN beginning 9 p.m. ET, Sunday, Dec. 2 with an encore at 5:30 p.m. ET, Friday, Dec. 7. (It is also available for purchase from EWTN Religious Catalogue at http://bit.ly/Tuwpfg.) There are four half-hour episodes in all to correspond with the four weeks of Advent. You'll want to ponder these reflections in your heart as you seek to deepen your prayer life during this "Year of Faith." Here's what you can expect:

  • Part I: Cardinal Dolan reflects on the COMING of the Messiah. We've been waiting for four centuries for Christ's return. Now, in four weeks, the Church helps us to become conscious of this longing which can't help but be in all of our hearts when we truly seek to understand the God for whom we are waiting.

  • Part 2: Cardinal Dolan reflects on the MYSTERY of Christ and how the Son of God comes to be reborn in you and me every day -- despite the world's failure to recognize Him. (Airs 9 p.m. ET, Sunday, Dec. 9 and 5:30 p.m. ET, Friday, Dec. 14.)

BOOKMARK

On-Location at the CMN Convention, Part 5 Catholic Writers Guild authors

Why we like it: The enthusiasm of these budding authors is positively contagious. After interviewing them at Dallas' recent Catholic Marketing Network, we couldn't wait to share their latest creations with you.

The Take-Away: A day-in-the-life of a young Catholic author is exciting stuff. All the information you need to enter (or maybe reconsider?) that terrifying world of the blank sheet of paper. Not for the faint of heart, but then, neither is Catholicism!
