New life

December 3

“To be a field for the word means to be earth which allows itself to be absorbed by the seed, which assimilates itself to the seed, renouncing itself so as to make the seed germinate. With her motherhood Mary transfused into it her very substance, body and soul, so that a new life might come forth…Mary makes herself completely available as the soil, she allows herself to be used and consumed so as to be transformed into him.

-Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI) on Mary’s motherhood

I ask only for peace

December 24
"O Jesus, I ask only for peace -- peace and, above all, love that is without measure or limits."
- St. Therese of Lisieux
Today's Reflection:
This reflection from St. Therese reminds us that "perfect love casts out fear." Our Lady was the perfect example of perfect love. Ask her to show you where you need to love more. Who do you need to forgive so that you might experience fully the peace of Christ on Christmas day?

The world's true peace

December 23
"Mother of mercy and of hope obtain for the men and women of the third millennium the precious gift of peace; peace in hearts and families, in communities and among peoples; peace above all for those Nations where people fight and die every day.
Obtain that every human being of every race and culture may encounter and accept Jesus, who came down to earth in the mystery of Christmas to give 'His' peace to us.
O Mary, Queen of Peace, give us Christ, the world's true Peace!"
- St. John Paul II
Today's Reflection:
Where do you need more peace in your life? Ask the Child Jesus to grant you the precious gift of His peace this Christmas.
