A wonderful Christmas story
to share by the Christmas tree
with family and friends.
A story you will never forget.
"1 2 In those days John the Baptist appeared, preaching in the desert of Judea. "(and) saying, 'Repent, 3 for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!' ...More at A Catholic Citizen in America.
"...When he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees 7 coming to his baptism, he said to them, 'You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?
"Produce good fruit as evidence of your repentance....."
(Matthew 3:1-2, 7-8)
|30 Day Advent Retreat|
A few days later Mary hurried to the hill country of Judea, to the town where Zechariah lived. She entered the house and greeted Elizabeth. At the sound of Mary’s greeting, Elizabeth’s child leaped within her, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

Everything we have reflected on so far, in this 30 Day Retreat, is impossible! Yet anything is impossible with God.
Listen to this beautiful reflection by John Michael Talbot, singing and sharing how all things are possible, in the power of the Holy Spirit.

“Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.”
God of power and mercy, open our hearts in welcome. Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with joy, so that we may share his wisdom and become one with him when he comes in glory, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
