O Radiant Dawn is a daily prayer book created for use around an Advent wreath in Catholic households of any configuration. It contains twenty-eight devotional services, each designed to last only five minutes—an achievable goal for busy families. The single-page service includes: 1) a simple candle lighting, 2) a brief scripture passage paired with a reflection question for adults and older children and one for younger children, 3) silence, and 4) a closing prayer. Rooted in scriptural images of light, O Radiant Dawn can be used in family prayer year after year.
With its many Advent wreath prayers, O Radiant Dawn is an ideal gift for parish-wide distribution and faith sharing groups. It can also be used as a part of an Advent retreat.
