This reflects the Advent/Christmas season to me: The uncertain path leads through apprehensions, fears, loss of stability, loneliness, and dismay; Only by complete Trust and Constant Prayer can we comprehend eternity in this life; Jesus thru Mary!

Caption: Our Path Through Life - Held Fast to His Heart.

This reflects the Advent/Christmas season to me:  Don’t go further on the road of the cross until you have Christmas.  Joy, Peace, Happiness come first so don’t hurry, take your time in life.  The end will come soon enough.
Caption:  First Christmas, then the Cross

Submitted by Mary
This reflects the Advent/Christmas season to me:  Standing at the foot of the Cross, what must have been going through Our Lady's mind as she watched in agony as the prophetic words came to fullfillment "and a sword will pierce your heart."
Embrace your cross as Mary our Mother.

Caption: Follow ME

Submitted by Esther
This reflects the Advent/Christmas season to me:  Jesus was born to die - - for ALL of us, every person in the world. I see a crown of thorns at the junction of the cross. I wonder if we are at that junction in the world now? The feet remind me of what Jesus said:  “Let the little children come to me”. With His help we can do that.  Come Lord Jesus, Come!

This reflects the Advent/Christmas season to me: Enter Advent in a dark month.  Choose the road to Our Lord.  Passionate prayer adds purple and joyful expectations add pink. Four lit candles of preparation and the Nativity is here!

This reflects the Advent/Christmas season to me:  First thing you see is a cross and a reminder of four short weeks to prepare our hearts, our minds and our souls for the coming of the Christ Child.
