DECEMBER 2020: We pray that our personal relationship with Jesus Christ be nourished by the Word of God and a life of prayer.
JANUARY 2021: May the Lord give us the grace to live in full fellowship with our brothers and sisters of other religions, praying for one another, open to all.
When we pray, God opens our eyes renews and changes our hearts, heals our wounds and grants us the grace we need.
We were not created to dream about vacations or the weekend, but to make God’s dreams come true in this world. God made us capable of dreaming, so that we could embrace the beauty of life. The works of mercy are the most beautiful works in life.
Before pouring out His love for us on the cross, Jesus shares His final wishes. He tells us that the good we do to one of our least brothers and sisters – hungry, thirsty, strangers, in need, sick, imprisoned – we do to Him (Mt 25:37-40).
Even a smile that we can share with the poor is a source of love. An outstretched hand can always be enriched by the smile of those who quietly and unassumingly offer to help, inspired only by the joy of living as one of Christ’s disciples.
