This year we're sharing weekly Advent
reflections created by author Joe Benevento

Listen, Read, Receive

We'll release weekly Advent Reflections from author, Joe Benevento, who earlier this year published his novel, My Perfect Wife, Her Perfect Son – generously donating the royalties of which to Catholic Charities in perpetuity.

This sincere gift paved the way to create an Advent reflection series that prompts listeners and readers to experience the Holy Family through the eyes of St. Joseph – before the halo. We hope you will enjoy the series and find your heart prepared to receive the peace of Christ this Christmas.
