Preparations: Spiritual and Practical

Each day this week there is Exposition (pictured above) from 5pm, and sung Vespers at 5:30pm. These times of prayer are an important part of our spiritual preparation for the feast of Christmas. The Cathedral is wonderfully atmospheric; its beauty is designed to help our prayer. To the left of the picture the three Advent candles can be seen burning.

Elsewhere, a crib figure en route to Bethlehem, and some Christmas tree stands ready for the big arrival - more on that story tomorrow!
