Digital Illustration for
Rejoice! Advent Meditations with Joseph
by Ascension Press
This digital illustration imagines Joesph getting up in the early pre-dawn to begin his day with prayer. Some symbolic elements give both context to Joseph's humble surroundings as well as a foreshadowing of some themes the Incarnation would soon bring to us. There is a lamp of oil which reminds us of Advent light and a reminder to keep our lamps trimmed and burning in anticipation for the coming of the Christ. There is also a basin and towel to remind us of Christs's humility and service.
This Advent season, may we begin our days with prayer, humility and gratitude. May we keep our lamps lit with trust in God's promises.
