Advent Calendar: Roman Gate 4

Gates, lift high your heads,
raise high the ancient gateways,
and the king of glory shall enter.
Psalm 24: 7 (New Jerusalem Bible)

Entrance Gate to Bioparco
The Bioparco, Rome's zoo in the Villa Borghese, is one of the oldest zoos in Europe, founded in 1911

Advent Prayer for Hope in Christ's Coming

All-powerful God,
help us to look forward in hope
to the coming of our Savior.
May we live as he taught,
ready to welcome him with burning love and faith.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen
