Advent reflection -- Dec. 14

This is today’s reflection from “How Far Is It to Bethlehem?” A Spiritual Guide for Advent 2010 by Sr. Carol Perry, S.U. for Marble Collegiate Church.

“And why has this happened to me, that the mother of my Lord comes to me?” Luke 1:43

In our world where each of us has been called to be a Christ-bearer, we can echo Elizabeth’s words. Christ comes to us in many forms in our daily life so that we have the awesome potential to offer Him to others too. This question merits pondering by us as we walk through this day.

Let us pray for the grace to be more consciously Christ-bearers, not necessarily by words directly, but by allowing Him to shine through each of us.

Christians are by definition, followers after Christ's footsteps. Except you walk in the footsteps of Christ; your Christianity is questionable. The Holy scriptures have been preserved and transmitted down to us through the ages by divine providence in order to learn the ways of Christ from this sacred book and live it.
