Online Advent Retreat

I had an email from that very sweet lady at Gloria TV, with a bright idea.
The international Catholic web-page Gloria.TV is holding a special on-line retreat this Advent concentrated on the O-antiphons .
The retreat will be given by Gloria.TV's own Father Reto Nay.
One of the most familiar of the Advent hymns is "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel," with the seven traditional "O Antiphons" being more than a thousand years old. They are used at the very end of Advent (Dec. 17-23) in the liturgical prayer of the Church and are sung or recited during Vespers (the Evening Prayer of the Liturgy of the Hours).

Here you will find the link to the promo video:
