Here at Dominicana Audio we are proud to present our 2013 Advent Preaching Conferences recorded at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC. Our first conference recorded on the first Sunday of Advent, 12/01/13, features Br. Raymund Synder, OP reflecting on Christmastime cliches in light of preparing for the coming of the Nativity of Jesus Christ.
Black Friday marks the annual inauguration of the battle between soulless capitalism and the worst kind of self-righteous Christianity. Some Christians, trying to preserve the “true meaning” of Christmas manage to destroy almost everything lovable about the holiday season. On the other side of the spectrum, sit those tyrants who look at Christmas and see only dollar signs and zeros. Are these the only two categories, though? Must we be recruited to fight in one militia or the other? Ultimately, at the deepest level, the question we’re asking in this year’s Advent Conferences is: Can we still authentically be with God in the middle of all the holiday cheer?
