From the Heart: Advent Prayers and Marian Art

I usually simply pray in my own words from my heart. However, the Catholic Church has a treasure trove of traditional written prayers which were never composed to rattle off by rote but written from the heart to inspire our hearts, especially when we are in a dry place when our own words have shrivelled.
I have gathered a few traditional Advent prayers to ignite a spark of prayer in all of us., connecting us to all those who have gone before us and all those who walk with us in the Mystical Body of Christ.
