Before you go...

These prayer cards are part of our Rejoice! Series with Fr. Mark Toups, featuring journals designed to accompany you daily through a more peaceful, meaningful, and joyful 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.

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.

How it Works

Following the same format that more than a hundred thousand people enjoyed in previous Rejoice! and Lenten Companion journals, Rejoice! offers powerful guided meditations for your prayer but also plenty of journaling space to write down your insights and make the journal your own.

Each day, you receive:

  • A word - Focus on a single word each day to draw you deeper into the heart of the Holy Family.
  • A reflection - Learn more about Joseph and Mary, their marriage, 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 find the Word of God, bringing you closer to Mary, who carried the Word in her body.
  • A prompt - Space is provided each day to journal. Record how the Lord is speaking to you this Advent.

Additionally, each week features stunning original sacred artwork by Catholic artist Mike Moyers and weekly reflection videos with Fr. Mark Toups plus a special kickoff video.

This is the perfect Advent meditation series for busy Catholics who want to maintain a consistent and fruitful prayer life this Advent.

Reflecting with Rejoice! — An Advent essential


"My Advent journey would not be the same without the Rejoice! Advent reflections! This year I ordered my copy late and began almost 2 weeks behind, but God´ s timing is perfect and each prayer and reflection touched my heart just when I needed it. I love the beauty of this series so much-- the one word focus, the Scripture references, the prayers, the videos, the journal prompts, the artwork and the imaginative prayer-- that I order the journals in bulk and pass them out to my friends in the faith. During one of the busiest times of the year for me, Rejoice! helps me remain focused, reflective and centered on what truly matters. I come to understand my own heart better and listen more attentively to the Lord speaking to me. This is truly a Gift to us all!"


Best Advent Ever

"I have never prepared for Christmas before like I did this year with Rejoice! I wrote every single day and sometimes I ran out of room! Advent has never been so meaningful for me. When Christmas finally arrived I felt like a child feels about Santa! (I am 80 years old) Thank you so much for this wonderful book."


"This was the best Advent preparation I can remember reading. Father Mark Toups is a an insightful and engaging writer who leads the reader on a different kind of journey. This book helped me understand how to pray differently, how to relate to God more authentically, and how to read and understand scripture by visualizing and joining the unfolding scenes. Even though Christmas is over, I keep returning to the words in this book."

Faith-Renewing Advent Journey


"This Advent has been special for me as I implemented the Rejoice! Advent journal. I cannot begin to describe how each day's reflections allowed me to grow deeper into my preparation for Christmas. To be honest, this is the first year that I felt Advent was a time of preparation for Christmas. It helped me to experience deeper prayer times each day where I allowed myself to be happy, to cry, and to pray. The past couple of years have been challenging for me and although those challenges are still present, this Advent I felt like I was no longer alone.
