A TIMELY REMINDER BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Note to self: don’t wear a cross around your neck if all you’re going to do is complain about the one on your back. Prayer is where the cross changes shoulders.
Please be satisfied with what you have and what you are. You will never be happy if you constantly worry about what others think about you.
If this Christmas season finds you away from the Church, angry at God or fearful of him, I invite you to remember this one simple fact: God became a tiny baby for you. See the child shivering in the cold manger and ask yourself if you are truly angry at him. Are you fearful of a baby? God is not angry with you either. He waits for you and invites you to give him your heart, your love. What greater gift could you give this Christmas?
