SINGAPORE – This year’s Advent booklet is titled "Being a People of Hope" and it examines how people in modern, urban Singapore envision hope.
Using the readings from the weekly liturgy of Advent, the writers offer a vision of Christian hope. Connections are also made to Pope Benedict XVI’s encyclical "Spe salvi", (Saved by Hope).
The Advent booklet sessions are designed to maximise the benefit of small group reflection."Being a People of Hope" is published by Singapore Pastoral Institute and Caritas Singapore Community Council.
The booklet is available in English, Mandarin, and Tamil. Complimentary copies will be distributed at parishes on the weekend of Nov 29-30. n
