Blessed Hope! Catholic Meditations with Music for the Season of Advent
   by Fr Jerome Bertram

Blessed Hope! Catholic Meditations with Music for the Season of AdventAs the season of Advent leads up to Christmas, we are invited to reflect on the coming of Christ – not only his coming to earth at Bethlehem, but also his coming at the end of our lives, at the end of time. Thus we think also about judgment and what is to come.

St John the Baptist is the great saint of Advent, and the meditations on this CD draw on his story and his preaching to ponder the great Advent themes. Complementary excerpts of Gregorian Chant, performed by the Oxford Oratory Choir, punctuate the meditations.
