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

Matt 11:16-19

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!

Monday, December 18 - Jer 23:5-8

Ps 72:1-2, 12-13, 18-19  - Matt 1:18-25

When  Joseph believed in the Virgin

conception, he made one of the greatest

acts of faith ever. If he had not made

this great act of faith, he would not

have been at the first Christmas. If we

are to meet Christ this Christmas, we

must have faith, as Joseph had faith.

Without faith, it is impossible to please

God this Christmas or any time, and the

purpose of Christmas is to please Christ.

After all, it is His Birthday celebration.
