    One thought on “Advent of the Heart: Seasonal Sermons and Prison Writings, 1941-1944

    1. Diane on said:

      This book was written by a Catholic priest living in Nazi Germany, who opposed Hitler's regime. The book is organized around the Sundays of Advent, including the readings for each day. They are followed by a sermon Father Delp preached before his arrest, and a reflection from his imprisonment on a similar theme.

    2. Debbie on said:

      Well worth reading a second time. Alfred Delp's Advent sermons are both beautiful and thought provoking. I have read the 1944 sermon, that he wrote in prison shortly before he was executed, many times and always find something new in it.

    3. Naomi on said:

      Alfred Delp was among the conscious religious resisters to Nazism. These meditations on Advent are meditations in the midst of evil-doing and the challenges to the human spirit to continue to resist, to do what is just, and to persevere in hope.

    4. Alan on said:

      A thought provoking collection of Advent meditations by a German Jesuit imprisoned,tortured and killed by the Nazis.
