Tuesday, December 12 - OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
Our Lady of Guadalupe told Juan Diego and us, as well:

Thursday, December 14 - St. John of the Cross
The Israelites had to walk thorugh the desert to
return to the land of promise. The Lord may be calling
you to do the same. "Trust in the Lord with all your
heart, on your intelligence rely not.He will make
straight your paths."
It was during his imprisonment in a place of
appaling conditions that St. John of the Cross
produced some of his finest spiritual wirtings.
Friday, December 15 - Is 48:17-18 - Ps 1:1-4-6
We are tempted to pretend to be God amd to
get everyone to do our will rather than God's
Will. Yes, we are not the Creator, we are the
created. We are not the perfect image of
the Father, but the imperfect image. We need
to conform to God's Will so that our
deformity will be reformed and transformed.
In this Advent let us be humble and docile
children of the Fahter.
Saturday, December 16 - Sir 48:1-4, 9-11
Ps 80:2-3, 15-16 - Matt 17:9-13
Despite the increase of sin, grace has far
surpassed it. "Eye has not seen, ear has
not heard,, nor has it so much dawned
on man what God has prepared for those
who love Him."
Sunday, December 17 - Is 61:1-2, 10-11
1Thes 5:16-24 - Luke 1:46-50, 53-54
John 1:6-8, 19-28
To meet Christ this Christmas, we need
the Holy Spirit to guide us. Most of us
have the Holy Spirit because we have
been baptized and confirmed. However,
the central question is "Does the Holy
Spirit have us?" Do we relate to the
Holy Spirit as a person? Do we say to
the Holy Spirit, as Mary did, "Let it
be done to me according to Your Word."
Are we quenching the Holy Spirit?
Come Holy Spirit!
We are a Roman Catholic church filled with the love of Christ.
We are centered on the Eucharist and the love of our Mother.
We are here to serve all in the name of the Lord
