“The Word became flesh and lived among us.” These words of St. John the Evangelist express the foundational mystery of the Catholic faith, which Christians around the world contemplate and celebrate every year during the Advent and Christmas seasons: the Incarnation.

In this new booklet from Word on Fire, readers are offered a week-by-week guide through these sacred seasons with a series of reflections on the Messiah, the Annunciation, the Incarnation, the Journey to Bethlehem, the Nativity, and the Holy Family. 

Featuring key passages from Scripture, extended readings from Bishop Robert Barron, and hymns, poetry, prayers, and additional reflections from across two thousand years of Catholic tradition, The Word Became Flesh is a perfect companion guide for parishes, families, and individuals longing for a deeper encounter with Christ during Advent and Christmas.
