December 24


Tuesday of the Fourth Week of Advent

  • Finish decorating your Christmas tree and light it as a symbol of Christ, Light of the World.

  • In his news-making September 2013 interview with La Civiltà Cattolica, the Italian Jesuit journal, Pope Francis said:

    "Instead of being just a church that welcomes and receives by keeping the doors open, let us try also to be a church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself and go to those who do not attend Mass, to those who have quit or are indifferent."

    How can you and your family answer the pope's call and bring light to others as agents of the New Evangelization?

  • Reflect on the journey of our first migrants, the Holy Family, into Egypt.  How does it compare to what today's migrants face?  Pray for all migrants and refugees.
