Thought for the day…

Week of Dec. 5/ Dec. 11, 2021

Second Sunday of Advent

 Sun, Dec. 5      While the body needs bread, the heart needs love. It is Christ who has

                          revealed to us that we are all children of a Father who love us and

                          who wishes to satisfy our hunger for love.

                                                                                Servant of God, Bishop William Giaquinta

Feast of St.  Nicholas

 Mon, Dec. 6     In God and with God, I love even the person whom I do not like or

                           even know. This can only take place on the basis of an intimate encounter

                           with God, an encounter which has become a communion of will, even

                           affecting my feeling.

                                                                                                                Pope Benedict XVI

 Suggestion: Show your love for all

 

                                                          Feast of Ambrose

            Tue, Dec. 7         The Lord in reply said to her: “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and upset about many things: one thing only is required. Mary has chosen the better portion and she shall not be deprived of it.”

               Feast of Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary                                                               

         Wed, Dec. 8         O Mary, we your children come to you. Pray for us, Mother of God. Pray for us who are torn by hatred, divided by self-interest, locked within ourselves

by ambition…

                                          Servant of God, Bishop William Giaquinta

        Suggestion: Where are you in working for the coming of the Kingdom?

Fri, Dec 10        Mary, spouse, virgin, and mother, our model, we give our family to you

                            To you. Make our family a tabernacle of love.

                               Suggestion: Take the time to contemplate passages of the Gospel on Mary  

 

Feast of Damasus !                 

Sat, Dec 11        Faith presupposes reason and perfects it, and reason, enlightened by faith, finds

                            the strength to rise to knowledge of God and spiritual realities.
