"Advent, this powerful liturgical season which we are beginning, invites us to pause in silence to understand a presence." --Pope Benedict XVI
"Advent, like its cousin, Lent, is a season for reformation and preparation of our hearts. Since it comes at winter time, fire is a fitting sign to help us celebrate Advent. If Christ is to come more fully into our lives at Christmas, if God is to become really incarnate for us, then fire will have to become present in our prayer. Our worship and devotion will have to stoke the kind of fire in our souls that can truly change our hearts. Ours is a great responsibility not to waste this Advent time.." --Edward Hays
