“He will be a joy and delight to you,
and many will rejoice because of his birth,
for he will be great in the sight of the Lord.”
-Luke 1: 14-15

A Time to Think… “Advent is a journey towards Bethlehem. May we let ourselves be drawn by the light of God made man.” ―Pope Francis

A Time to Act… When we can accept the Advent season as something important and not just a tradition we will change the way we look at Christmas. Our journey is not finding the best gift, the most beautiful tree or decorated home. It is finding Christ amidst all of this journey to the cradle and the cross.

A Time to Pray… O God, I need to be delighted again. It is so easy to go through all the traditions of Christmas and miss the whole meaning of you sending your Son to this earth. Give me a new focus this year, delight me with the gift of Christ, and draw me again into this miracle that pronounces me saved and loved beyond any other gift, AMEN.
