Advent or 'Advenio' in Latin, means to come or a time of expecting or waiting. Advent in the Catholic Church is the period of time in which we prepare for the coming of the birth of Christ and the second coming of Christ at the end of time. Advent begins four Sundays before Christmas. It also marks the start of the Liturgical New Year. Runtime : 6:34 mins
