Description:

Christians are pilgrims, and different aspects of our journey are celebrated throughout the liturgical year via the lens of Christ’s life, death and resurrection. “Posada” reminds us of the longing—experienced both by Christ and us—for place and shelter. This piece is ideal for use in various prayer services during the final days of the Advent season, calling us not merely to prepare a place for the stranger, but also to offer a welcome worthy of the Holy Family!
