This week on CNA Newsroom, we take a look at how the season of Advent can be celebrated - even in the darkest of times. 

Catholic author Kendra Tierney shares how her family celebrates the Advent season at home, and how you can celebrate at home too.

We’ll share the story of Father Alfred Delp, a German Jesuit who clung to the hope of Advent despite his imprisonment - and execution - by the Nazis during World War II.

We’ll talk about the Advent Festival of Lessons and Carols - and even hear some beautiful music by the choir at Wyoming Catholic College.
