Advent is a time of preparation and waiting for the birth of Jesus, a time when we ask ourselves is there room for the baby Jesus in the Inn of our hearts? The Xt3 Advent Calendar is a website and app that contains a variety of videos, meditations and podcasts for the Christmas season, providing people with the means to encounter the true spirit of Christmas in their everyday lives.
The app is free and available on iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Search for Xt3 Advent in the Google Play store or the app store and download today!
The first Advent calendar door will open on the 27th of November with a new door opening each day until the 8th of January.
Prepare your heart for Christ and go deeper in your faith.
‘This year, the calendar looks at the Nativity scene through the eyes of a child. Xt3.com has featured the winning artworks of the 2015 Christmas Story Art Exhibition adorning the Xt3 Advent Calendar with beautiful images of the Nativity scene. These have been painted by children in Years 5 and 6 from Sydney schools and surrounding areas. Amidst the artworks, the app contains reflective weekly videos highlighting words of love and compassion from St Teresa of Kolkata, who was canonised this year.
The app also features reflections on Christmas carols such as Angels We Have Heard on High and O Come All Ye Faithful, as well as questions and answers from Xt3’s Ask a Priest forum. With new content every day, including messages from Pope Francis and Sydney’s Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP, the 2016 Xt3 Advent Calendar helps you to prepare your heart for Christ amidst the busyness of Christmas‘.
