Pope Francis has been clear that he wants us leaders of the church to have the smell of the sheep. Make your weekly bulletin or Facebook page smell like the sheep, too, with this delightful day-by-day Advent resource by the hilarious Jean Denton. Use it in one of these ways:
- Print a double-sided handout each week of the Advent season and insert it in your bulletin or distribute it at parish meetings.
- Paste both pages directly into your weekly bulletin document files (we provide full-page images).
- Paste one cartoon per day along with the reflection text on your parish social media account: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
- Email one cartoon per day to your parishioners.
Jean's cartoons will draw people in and then guide them to a simple Scripture quotation and daily reflection.
