This Wondrous Gift

Dec 16, 2019

Bulletin December 22 -> Christmas!

This 4th week of Advent leads us to Christmas!  Our spiritual life is all about union with God.  Let our Advent be all about strengthening this relationship.  We will soon celebrate receiving the great gift of love which Mary brings forth in the flesh.    The Birth of the Holy Child will celebrate God’s love made immediately available to all.  The human Jesus allows us to know the Divine!  We embrace the light of divine love – this wondrous gift of the divine self freely-given.  St. Ignatius says: “It is the prerogative of the Creator alone to enter the soul, and cause a motion in it which draws the whole person into love of His Divine Majesty.” (SE330) Has this motion ever been real for you? Have you ever felt God drawing you to Himself?  Throughout Advent you have journeyed in hope and trust with Mary.  May your spirit be nourished and your heart prepared.  In gratitude for the gift of bounteous love, you are ready to greet the Prince of Peace!
