One Bread, One Body - Reflection for December 21, 2014


"Mary said to the angel, 'How can this be...?' " –Luke 1:34

To have a true Christmas, to meet Christ at Mass in a new, glorious way during the Christmas season, we must have a "Mary" Christmas and love Jesus as Mary does. To have a "Mary" Christmas, we should:

A "Mary" Christmas is a Christmas of faith, joy, self-sacrifice, obedience, evangelistic zeal, redemptive suffering, praise-filled worship, and constant prayer in the Holy Spirit.

"Mary" Christmas!

PRAYER: Prayer: Jesus, may You get what You want for Christmas.
PROMISE: "The favors of the Lord I will sing forever; through all generations my mouth shall proclaim Your faithfulness." –Ps 89:2
PRAISE: "O Radiant Dawn, Splendor of eternal light, Sun of Justice: come, shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death."
