First Sunday of Advent

Resuming Prayer on the Hill

This is a notice that I will resume postings to Prayer on the Hill beginning Sunday, the First Sunday of Advent, December 1st, in time for the Vigil Mass celebrated for that evening.

Thank you for your patience since the Shingles took up residence in and on one side of my face.  The pictures, at the height of the storm, are not pleasant.  However, most of the swelling in my face has been reduced to almost nothing.  Some of the medication that I have to continue is, at times, a cause of sleepiness.

However, as we begin anew, I would suggest that you take a look at pre-Advent programs -- prayers, reflections, etc -- published by the Creighton University Jesuits, faculty and students.  You can locate the information at  Once there you will have to look for the several sidebars for the variety of Advent helps ... even for the week we are in at the moment, leading up to the First Sunday of Advent.

All the best to you.  May the holiday season be helpful and may your journey through Advent in the days ahead be helpful and a source of much inner peace and joy.
