Jesus proclaims that our suffering, our poverty, our grieving, our search for justice, our acts of mercy and peacemaking, our humility, can make us “blessed.”
And lest we think we can remain spectators, the liturgy invites us to shoulder the role of disciple.
All who have been baptized in Christ are called to undertake the same mission of the Servant—being a light to others.
God’s revelation in Jesus has a power surpassing all our modern technological “miracles” because it speaks to our hearts.
Let’s imitate Mary, responding to God’s love born in us with all the love and care of a mother.
Our own Christmas giving is meant to symbolize God's generosity to us.
God wants to "be with us." That presence of God with us is at the very heart of the Christmas celebration.
People of faith need to look beyond the superficial joy urged on us by holiday ads to be signs of Christ present to those search for God.
We need to welcome God's grace and power present in Jesus Christ.
It’s easy to get caught up in Christmas nostalgia, and to forget the central truth of the season: God is breaking into our troubled world.
