Advent –

The Advent season of preparation begins today and it calls on us to subdue some of our ordinary expressions both  within the liturgy and in our daily life. It also signals the start of a new liturgical year. Our Ordo provides the following guide to this ancient Christian discipline.

“FIRST IN ADVENT –  Purple, Liturgical 2022 begins; Sunday Cycle C, Daily Year 2; Omit Te Deum and Gloria on Sunday until Christmas; Creed; Use preface of Advent until Christmas unless otherwise noted.”
