Adventus Domini

The Liturgical Season of Advent, a period of four Sundays of expectant and watchful waiting, is in preparation for Jesus’ coming. The term Advent is the English translation of the Latin noun Adventus (“coming” or “arrival”), which also translates the Greek word parousia (second coming). During this season the Church contemporaneously contemplates the first historical and salvific coming of the second person of the Most Holy Trinity to dwell among us (which we commemorate at Christmas) and His return at the end of time as Bridegroom of the Church and Judge both of the living and the dead.

We continue to expand the range of product in our gift shop which relates to or echoes the art and architecture of the Cathedral. Recent such editions are glass roundels which replicate in glass images, typically mosaics which can be seen in the Cathedral. The image of Our Lady of Walsingham which adorns the side of the pulpit in the Cathedral is a good example of this.
