Thanksgiving and Advent

Catholic New Media Advent Calendar

Today we celebrate in the Church the Feast of Christ the King, which marks the end of the liturgical year. Next Sunday is the 1st Sunday of Advent, the beginning of a new liturgical year. It is also a very special time of preparation for Catholics around the world.

This year, in addition to beginning Advent, I am also beginning a new podcast. The first episode will be up this week. Can you guess the theme of the episode? Surprisingly enough it is Thanksgiving! Please check back this week as I will post the episode here. It will also be available on iTunes.

Today I am working on a promo for the show. I hope to complete it today and post it here as well.

On November 30, the Catholic New Media Roundup will begin an online Advent calendar. Each day of Advent a catholic contributor will provide a surprise (a special blog post, audio clip, podcast, music, short videos, or art).

You can find the calendar here or click on the image above.
