Think Advent with these free background images for your phone

Here’s a clever idea to turn your mind to Jesus –80 times a day! That’s the average number of times people unlock their phone. So before you even get to your favorite Catholic app, you can encounter sacred art depicting Christ and the Holy Family this Advent. It’s a gift from the folks at Ascension!

Download all 5 of these original images (complete with instructions for changing your phone’s background image) from their Rejoice! Advent Meditations with Mary Journal:
  • The Annunciation
  • The Visitation
  • The Journey to Bethlehem
  • The Manger
  • The Nativity
