It’s a Wonderful Life: Presents, Presence, and More Presence
An advent reflection by Fr Daniel Brandenburg, LC, in print and on podcast.

Christmas presents
The greatest present of all is God's presence.

December 18, 2011. As Advent draws to a close, God invites us to see the presence of God with renewed vision. But in order to see the greatest “present” of all—the face of God— we need a change of heart.

“This is what we will explore and pray about together today: the gift of God, what keeps us from his presence, and most importantly, to enter into his presence,” says Fr Daniel in an Advent reflection that was well received in various cities throughout the United States.

In his talk, he draws a parallel between the story of George Bailey, from the classic movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” and our own spiritual walk, too often marred by an inability to see the goodness of God in our lives.

Full of stories, illustrations, and practical applications, this talk invites listeners to grow in the three “Advent attitudes” of gratitude, penance, and adoration so as to welcome the Christ Child into a purified heart.
