Symbols of the season:
Christmas Lights = Spiritual Light of Jesus, our Savior, the Light of the World!
Christmas Tree = Reminder of the wood of the Cross.
Advent Wreath = 4 candles = the centuries awaiting the true Messiah.
All these decorations- symbols have a meaning! They should inspire us to reflect on the mysteries of Our Lord as we prepare ourselves for the Christmas Season which is only about to begin tomorrow!
