Thought for the day…

Week of Dec. 9/ Dec. 15, 2018

 

                    Second Sunday of Advent    / Feast of San Juan Diego

 Sun, Dec. 9      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               

 

 Mon, Dec.10     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.

                                                                                                                                                 Benedict XVI

                                                           Suggestion: Show your love for all

Feast of St. Damasus

            Tue, Dec. 11      The entire liturgy of Advent invites us to encounter Christ who comes to save us. We are preparing to commemorate the birth that took place in Bethlehem two thousand years ago: we renew our faith in his glorious coming at the end of time.

Suggestion:  How are you preparing your heart to encounter the new Born?                                                                                                

                           

   Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

         Wed, Dec.12       Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of Peace! Save the nations and the

                                    people of this continent. Teach everyone, political leaders and citizen, to live in true freedom and to act according to the requirements of justice and respect for human rights, so that peace may thus be established.

         

            Suggestion: Are you working for the coming of the Kingdom of Peace?

Feast of St Lucy

Thu, Dec. 13      Seek God in all things and we shall find God by our side.

                                                                                   Saint Peter Claver SJ

        Suggestion: Where are you seeking the Lord today?

                 Feast of St John of the Cross

Fri, Dec 14        Do you want to be made well?” ”Pick up your mat and walk.”                                                                                                                 

                                       Suggestion: Take the time to read the entire passage today John 5:1-18

 

Sat, Dec 15         The world does not belong to those who limit themselves to sitting on the sidelines, but to those who work to conquer it.

                                             Servant of God, Bishop William Giaquinta
