December 23


Monday of the Fourth Week of Advent

  • Watch a reflection on today's Gospel (Lk 1:57-66) from Jesuit Father Peter Ryan, executive director of the USCCB Secretariat of Doctrine and Canonical Affairs.  Father Ryan illuminates the story of the birth of St. John the Baptist and how his father, Zechariah, reclaimed his voice.

  • In his first encyclical letter, "Lumen Fidei," Pope Francis writes:
    "The light of faith is unique, since it is capable of illuminating every aspect of human existence.  A light this powerful cannot come from ourselves but from a more primordial source: in a word, it must come from God."
    How does the light of faith illuminate your life? 

  • Taking the theme of Lumen Fidei into the digital world, read this article on Sharing the Light on Faith Online and have a family discussion about a faithful approach to digital communication.
