REJOICE!!! Jesus Is Almost Here…

REJOICE!

Wait a minute, you may ask…Jesus Christ was born two thousand years ago and lives among us today. Why should I look forward to welcoming Someone who is already here?

Maybe it will help to look at it this way. We may not realize it, but there are areas in each of our lives that remain closed to Jesus. It could be our finances, marriage, job, leisure time or any number of things. If I follow the recommendations of the Church and spend a little more time praying, reading the Bible and receiving the Sacraments during Advent, these “closed areas” will become apparent to me and I’ll have a chance to welcome the Lord to previously inaccessible areas of my life. That, my friends, is a BIG deal.

Therefore, keep your eye on the finish line and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you the “closed areas” of your life. Then, take the bold step of telling Jesus He is welcome in those areas. Finally, do what today’s readings recommend…

Rejoice, because the Lord always goes where He’s invited!

Want To See An Example Of Pure, Childlike Faith?


 

“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3)

Here is one of the most beautiful examples of childlike faith that you will ever see. Sadly, many of lose this kind of unrestrained enthusiasm and trust as we grow older and succumb to the world’s negativity and cynicism. Watch as these joyful Dominican sisters receive the news that a new pope has been chosen. Be prepared for chills, tears and an overall good feeling. This is a powerful example of the joy that results from true faith!
