In week one of the Prepare Your Heart Advent journal, Fr. Agustino Torres, CFR, invites us to focus on the town of Nazareth during the time of Jesus.

Jesus and one another that holiness happens—that our hearts and lives are transformed. What ordinary behaviors, or acts, can you sanctify this Advent?
