Merry Christmas! Depending on the Mass you attend, there are four different sets of readings. Yet as we ponder God’s love for our fallen world, may the hope in our hearts burst forth as we proclaim the Good News with tidings of glad joy: today is born our savior, Christ the Lord!
Jesus chooses to stay with Zacchaeus, a despised tax collector and sinner. May this Scripture give us all hope, for the Lord chooses to stay with us – knowing full well all our sins – that he might seek and save what was lost.
St. Paul shows the people of Corinth how the resurrection of Jesus propels our hope that at the end of our earthly lives the Lord will raise us up. May this conviction empower us to shine with the light of Christ!
Today’s psalm both acknowledges our struggles and affirms our faith in God’s grace. May we turn to the Lord in our times of trial and draw strength from the one who died that we might have eternal life.
