Second Sunday of Advent
“It has long been a Catholic custom to prepare a crib for the Christ Child.
In every Maryknoll house, we provide the straw for the crib – each wisp of hay representing some penance, some sacrifice, a prayer or an act of love offered in homage to the Christ Child…[with] the hope that such a bed will comfort and gladden Him on His birthday.”
– Mother Mary Joseph Rogers, The Spirit of Advent, 1947
