Advent Season for Catholics is the time for hope and waiting. Advent Season usually occurs four Sundays before Christmas Day and is going to end on the eve of Christmas in which, it is believed to be the time for the preparation of the coming of the child Jesus in Christmas Day. They have derived the word Advent from the latin word coming which denotes the coming of the Saviour.
A long, long time ago, as in centuries ago, Christians like Catholics, uses Advent Wreath which will serve as a reminder of their belief that their savior is coming and the time has come for them to prepare. When the Advent season will come, you will be able to observe that you and those people around you will be able to make this celebration and the birth of Jesus more meaningful with the help of Advent devotionals, the Bible, and having to light the candles and knowing what each candle denotes.
For most of the Advent Devotionals, the use of the Advent wreath play a big role in the celebration for the coming of the birth of the child Jesus and this is represented by the candles aligned along the wreath. For Christian dominated countries, each candle in the Advent Wreath represents the different virtues of Christ such as love, peace, joy and hope. In some churches, the four candles in the advent Wreath signifies four of the most important people in the Christian faith such as the Angels, The shepherds, Mary and Joseph. To some worship leaders, the four candles in the advent wreath bring a solid representation of the waiting for the coming of Jesus Christ.
Perhaps the best thing that Advent Devotionals has contributed to the celebration of Advent is that they help you remind of the more valued reason why it is being celebrated and what impact it brought you in your life as a Christian. In the Advent Devotionals, you will find a more detailed description of the meaning of every candle found in the advent Wreath and what these candles represents. Most of the Advent believers, especially those that belong in the Catholic faith, uses three blue or violet colored candles, one candle in pink and one in white which represents Jesus Christ as the center of it all.
