Imagining The Nativity-An Advent Prayer Resource for Families

Jesuit Media Initiatives and the Diocese of Westminster Marriage and Family Life team have joined forces to produce a series of imaginative contemplations to help families journey alongside the Holy Family in prayer this Advent.

The series of six imaginative contemplations, plus an introduction, are now available to listen to or download from the Jesuits’ spirituality website Pathways to God.

Each contemplation focusses on a person or group from the Nativity story – Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the Magi - who will all be very familiar to children.

We follow different characters and the different angles from which they see Mary's pregnancy and Christ's birth. You will have the opportunity to imagine all this through the eyes of Elizabeth, Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, the wisemen and even the innkeeper's wife!

We invite families this Advent to embark on a special journey: one where we can reflect on the composition and healthiness of the earth in the domestic setting of the home and in the context of the parish.
