Liturgical Press releases its annual Advent devotional, Mark Boyer's Waiting in Joyful Hope: Daily Reflections for Advent and Christmas 2003—2004, Year C . As in years past, the book helps individuals prepare for Christ's coming ("advent") by using the Scriptures of the Mass for each day, followed by a reflection, a question to ponder and a short prayer. The pocket-sized book can be taken anywhere, and its waifish price will invite new readers as well as those who faithfully purchase this devotional year after year.
