Don’t rush Advent, says Archbishop

Take your time…for Advent. Archbishop Jason Gordon is challenging Catholics to be attentive to the observance and enjoy the “waiting” period before the birth of Jesus Christ.

He said the Advent season was being lost when Christmas decorations are put up from as early as October and Christmas songs being sung and played on radio.
