With the state of today’s world, it would be easy to give up hope, but as the year draws to a close, the blessed Feast of Christ comes to remind us that Jesus came to this world to save sinners.
A beacon of love is shining, the Light of the world, who invites us to leave face the future with expectation and joy.
Advent should remind us time and again that, even if we suffer, Christ is still our hope for the future; as He has been for His children through the ages.
From scripture, “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have,”
I am completely saddened by the evil that walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School today. There are no words to express my sorrow and grief. My prayers and thoughts are with the community.
Today let us consider true holiness. How can we all the Holy?
Life of fullness and great joy can be likened to holiness. Yet true holiness is the most dynamic, creative and meaningful lifestyle in the world.
To be holy implies that you live in a real relationship with God. It causes you to enjoy life to the full and also gives you a greater understanding of people, God, and the Holy Spirit.
The secret of a balanced, joyful, rewarding life is to live in such a way that is easy for the Lord to reveal Himself through you. This is the way of true sanctification, is also the road to a successful life according to God’s standard and down the path of righteousness.
The book of Isaiah 55:8: “‘My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord.”
A prayer to consider holiness: Teach me, oh Holy Spirit, the true meaning of holiness and enable me to live a life that will bring glory and honor to You each day. Amen.
