Weekly Devotion – December 25th

Weekly Devotion for December 25thMerry Christmas!

In Sunday’s first reading we hear about the house of God. God says it is not in our hands to build, but that He will give us a living temple. The true house of God, the place where He lives, is none other than Mary, the blessed mother. It is Mary who opens the door for the coming of God to the world and who received the son of God.

In some ways, when we accept the presence of God in our lives, we also become a home for God and open the door for His presence in the world. In spite of our doubts, hesitations, and fears, if we say yes like Mary, we will facilitate the coming of God to a world that is in need of salvation, peace, and forgiveness.

We pray together: I pray for the gift of a pure heart, St. Jude. May Mother Mary’s gentle guidance be with me in times of temptation.

    Dear st Jude help me to forgive my son. Help me not to be so sensitive and let things bother me. Pls take every ounce of jealousy and selfishness out of my dons and husband. Help them realize what they have and think before they say something to hurt someone. Help them not be greedy but rather content. And not constantly complaining. Pls bring peace and love and acceptance. Amen

    s.jude that Christmas I sucked, as always
    because you left me too Because, in front of the other, I made a vow to you a promise
    that if you gave me my thanks, I thank you as you know …
    I made a vow … an oath …
    because you left me too, why do not you help me …
    I’m staca, I wonder but exesistite … I’m disheartened and I’m not believing anymore
    give me thanks, give me a sign that I can believe again …
    please give me thanks, you know what you wish.

    compassion I’m being co-opted …
    only you can help me I beg you
