CHRIST COMES IN HISTORY, MYSTERY AND MAJESTY: REFLECTIONS ON ADVENT WITH HIS EMINENCE, TIMOTHY CARDINAL DOLAN
These Advent Reflections were recorded especially for EWTN in Cardinal Dolan’s private chapel.
Week One – Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York reflects on the coming of the Messiah and how the Church during Advent, in a small way, consolidates those waiting for centuries into four short weeks.
Week Two – Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York reflects on the mystery of Christ and how he comes to be reborn in us every day, despite the world’s failure to recognize Him.
Week Three – Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York reflects on the majesty of Christ, his return as the Omnipotent Judge, and how we should look at our actions “under the aspect of eternity’ during Advent.
Week Four – Cardinal Timothy Dolan reflects on how Christ comes through the saints, from the proclamation of the kingdom to the call of repentance and conversion of heart.
