Writers’ Guidelines

The theme for this year’s Online Advent Calendar is Mercy. Feel free to draw your reflection from anything you find in this rich document from Pope Francis: Misericordiae Vultus in English
Jubliee of Mercy Misericordiae Vultus en Espanol Jubileo Extraordinario de la Misericordia, or in the scripture for the day, which is listed below.

Reflections should be about 200-600 words. You may write in either English or Spanish. (If you can provide a translation, that would be very helpful, but not required.) The deadline is October 23, 2015. Please email your reflection to Baya at

Below are the available dates with their scripture links. For the week of December 17-23, I have also included the day’s O Antiphon, in case you would like to base your reflection on that.
