Rejoice! Advent Meditations with the Holy Family

by Fr. Mark Toups

Home > Rejoice: Advent Meditations with the Holy Family

Experience a more peaceful, more joyful, and more meaningful Advent than ever before

Rejoice! Advent Meditations with the Holy Family is a prayer resource with daily meditations that will enrich your Advent by inviting you to experience the first Advent with Joseph and Mary, as they await the birth of their son, the Savior of the world.

Together with the guided meditation videos, this journal will help you to see the marriage of Mary and Joseph in a new light. You will ponder what was in their hearts and minds as they awaited the birth of Jesus—and you will be invited to reflect on and deepen your own relationships with others. Rejoice! will help you open your heart to the peace and joy of the Holy Family as you prepare for the coming of Jesus this Christmas.

Join Fr. Mark Toups for Rejoice! LIVE - Sundays in Advent

Beginning on Sunday November 29th at 8PM ET

This year on the Sundays in Advent, we invite you to Rejoice! LIVE with Fr. Mark Toups as he joins us LIVE via Ascension's YouTube page. We’ll be coming together to share in the beautiful tradition of the Advent wreath to pray, unpack the Sunday Scripture reading, and prepare our hearts for the coming week of Advent.

Each Sunday Father will begin by leading us together in lighting the Advent wreath and praying the prayers found on the backs of the Rejoice! Advent Prayer Cards. We look forward to seeing you there.

  • November 29th 8PM ET - The Blessing of the Advent Wreath and Lighting of the First Candle
  • December 6th 8PM ET - The Lighting of the Second Candle
  • December 13th 8PM ET - The Lighting of the Third Candle
  • December 20th 8PM ET - The Lighting of the Fourth Candle

Each Day, you’ll walk with the Holy Family and enjoy ...

  • A word - Focus on a single word each day to draw out the details, the specifics of the Holy Family.
  • A reflection - Learn more about their lives, the culture in which they were raised, and the world in which they lived.
  • A Psalm - Each day, you’re given a Psalm to pray (just as Mary and Joseph would have prayed) to help you enter into prayer.
  • A reading - In reading Scripture, you'll enter into the story of the first Advent, and walk beside the Holy Family.
  • A prompt - Space is provided each day to journal. Record how the Lord is speaking to you this Advent.
