BALTIMORE (CNS)--The gathering of U.S. bishops in Baltimore Nov. 12-14 on the heels of the clergy abuse scandal that hit the Catholic Church this past summer had echoes of the 2002 bishops’ meeting in Dallas, which took place just months after the Church was also reeling from the clergy sexual abuse crisis that made headlines in The Boston Globe.

“Crimes can be adjudicated; sins can be forgiven; blunders can rarely be rectified.”

Whether you want to use Ecclesiastes 3, or The Byrds, there is a season for all things, and in the simplest of terms that means: We all “turn” into our parents. That thought passed through my mind as I walked up to every caretaker at our All Saints Trunk or Treat and said, “You know, when I was growing up we only got one piece of candy per house.”

Advent, the four-week period preceding Christmas, is a time to slow down as we wait in hopeful expectation for Christ’s coming. It’s a time to take stock of what’s important in our lives, casting away extra commitments and wasted energy we’ve added throughout the year.
 
Here are a few traditions that an individual or a family can practice to slow down and draw closer to Christ during Advent.
