Isaiah, Paul, and John the Baptist all respond to the Lord's call for their lives.  Their example inspires us to listen to our hearts, to others and to the Lord so that we might proclaim, like the response in the psalm today, "Hear am I Lord, I come to do your will!"

The Lord's rebuke of an unclean spirit in the Gospel of Mark reminds us that not only is evil a part of our lives, but that we have an obligation to confront it with the grace and strength that comes to us through Jesus Christ.

The Magi were guided through the illumination of knowledge and faith to the Christ Child.  We, too, can be guided through the challenges of life when we we use our minds to the best of our ability and get down on our knees to pray for wisdom.

John the Baptist proclaims that "one mightier than I is coming" into the world.  As we encounter the mystery of God we have the opportunity to let go of our need to control and receive the blessing of heavenly grace.

"What are you looking for?" Jesus asks the two disciples, and his question continues to speak to our hearts today.  As we draw near to the Lord we have the opportunity to seek our hearts' desire from the one who knows us best.

Our knowledge of Mary flows from our knowledge of her Son, and her example teaches us how to be living witnesses in the face of adversity as we continue to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world.

Happy New Year!

The Prologue of the Gospel of John proclaims Jesus Christ - God's Word - who became flesh that we might see and know him.  As we draw near to our Savior, we rejoice over God's love and offer our lives as living witnesses of the Lord.

As Simeon held the Christ Child in his arms praising God, he recalls the fulfillment of the Lord's promises and points to the redemption of humanity.  May we look back and see how God has touched our lives and embrace each day as a new opportunity to the serve the Lord with full hearts!

Dec 28, 2016

Surrounded by the glory of Christmas, we have a chilling reminder of the reason why the Lord came into our world.  Fueled by rage, jealousy, and hate, King Herod attempts to kill the Christ Child by having every baby boy under two killed in the region around Bethlehem.  The senseless violence strikes a chord in our hearts to protect life, inspiring us to proclaim the Prince of Peace in our world today.

John's testimony about Jesus as the Word of God provides us with an opportunity to reflect in this Octave of Christmas:

  1. How do we hear the Word of God in our lives today?
  2. How do we proclaim the Word of God to one another?

The Christmas story touches our hearts and gets past our defenses.  Why?  Because babies evoke a loving response!  God's love story with humanity helps us see how the Lord - in taking on our human form - helps us to draw near through the gentleness of an infant.  May the Christ child take us by the hand and lead us this Christmas to embrace our faith and give glory to God through the gift of our lives.

Zechariah's canticle of praise reveals both the work of John the Baptist and the glory of the Lord.  God continues to work in our world; may this Christmas renew our faith as we do our part to share the Good News with one another.

John's birth and his naming foreshadow the glory of Jesus.  God's great work of salvation leads us to rejoice as we witness how the Lord involves many (including us!) in the mission of Jesus Christ.

The exchange between Elizabeth and Mary follows up the events we heard at Mass yesterday.  Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, recognizes Jesus as her own child (John the Baptist) leaps for joy in her womb.  May this Christmas offer us the opportunity to draw near to the Lord and be filled with the same Spirit!
