Catholic Ministries for the New Evangelization
The Divine Office Ministry has partnered with some of the best Catholic resources available, as a way to reach out to Catholics this Advent season in a campaign starting today, and continuing through the holiday, until December 26, 2012. Join this ever-expanding community in prayer this season: take advantage of the advent promotion – Divine Office apps are being offered at a special discounted price (25% off between now until December 26th). The Advent promotion is a great time to gift an app for those left on the gift list, or simply celebrate the season by sharing support for one another, and telling others about the Catholic resources that have come together for the worshipping Catholic Community.

The goal of this campaign is to bring together other great resources, like Divine Office, which help the community further their intentions with God, and in their faith; to support one another, and restore peace. Together with these resources, the DIvine Office Ministry aims to provide tools and services to Catholics everywhere, which help “intensify the celebration of the faith in the liturgy,” and “to rediscover the content of the faith that is professed, celebrated, lived and prayed, “ as proclaimed in the Pope’s message. It is in response to the Pope’s own words reflected upon this Year of Faith, that DIvine Office begins this season with the Catholic Ministries for the New Evangelization Awareness Campaign:
“We want to celebrate this Year in a worthy and fruitful manner. Reflection on the faith will have to be intensified, so as to help all believers in Christ to acquire a more conscious and vigorous adherence to the Gospel, especially at a time of profound change such as humanity is currently experiencing. want this Year to arouse in every believer the aspiration to profess the faith in fullness and with renewed conviction, with confidence and hope. It will also be a good opportunity to intensify the celebration of the faith in the liturgy [...] At the same time, we make it our prayer that believers’ witness of life may grow in credibility. To rediscover the content of the faith that is professed, celebrated, lived and prayed, and to reflect on the act of faith, is a task that every believer must make his own, especially in the course of this Year.” – Pope Benedict XVI
From everyone in the Divine Office Ministry family to yours, we wish you a blessed final week of Advent in joyous preparation for a very Merry Christmas Season!
