Paul's Letter to the Philippians offers a rich insight filled with joy and hope: The Lord is near! May Christ's presence in our lives encourage us to embrace the gift of faith and live it in the world.

The Psalm response echoes our desire to call upon the Lord for mercy and love. May these words speak to our hearts as we prepare for Christmas.

Isaiah reminds the people that the Lord teaches us. The real issue: Will we listen and put this instruction into practice?

Isaiah prophesies to the people with a blunt message to cast aside fear and trust in the Lord. These words are just as pertinent today as we bring the darkness of fear into the light of faith.

There is a sharp contrast between the Book of Genesis and the Gospel of Matthew. Whereas Adam and Eve experience the devastating consequences of sin, Mary embraces the words of the angel Gabriel and accepts God's plan for salvation history. May her words inspire us to say "Yes!" to the Lord today.

Both Isaiah and the Gospel of Matthew reveal that God cares for us like a zealous shepherd who guards the sheep. May we trust in the Lord to lead and guide us through this life to the next.

In the Gospel of Luke a group of men did what was needed to bring a paralytic man to Jesus. Their example of faith, tenacity and hard work inspire us to be the friend that our friends need today!

John the Baptist fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah as he preaches repentance for the forgiveness of sins. The Reason? To prepare the people to encounter Jesus Christ.

The Gospel of Matthew shows Jesus sending out the Twelve Apostles, empowering them to carry out his work. Their example inspires us to offer our lives for the Lord's service today.

Light is so important to us as we rely on our sense of sight. Yet there is also spiritual sight that guides us always...and so we welcome Christ our light!

The first reading from Isaiah and the Gospel of Matthew inspire us to trust in the Lord as we listen to Christ and act on his word.

The readings today all point to a time of fulfillment and hope. The "mountain of the Lord" or the "house of the Lord" or even the healing and restoration made possible by Jesus...it all looks to our final destination where the Lord Jesus Christ reigns supreme!
