Weekly Devotion – December 10thWeekly Devotions
We are encouraged to turn away from sin and to leave behind anything in our lives that is contrary to the Gospel. Habits of selfishness keep us from recognizing the needs of the poor and less fortunate.
Indulging ourselves in the culture of hedonism prevents us from experiencing true love and all of the fidelity, commitment, and sacrifice that it requires.
“Prepare the way of the Lord, make his path straight,” John the Baptist cries.
He speaks not only to the people of his day who gathered around him. He also speaks to us and invites us to change our ways so that our hearts will be open to the presence of the Lord in our everyday living.
We pray together: St. Jude, prepare our hearts and open them to the joy and hope that God’s presence bestows.
