Christmas in July...

So far it’s been a hectic summer in my world, with lots of travel and a move thrown in. Time for relaxing has been hard to come by. I’m sure that’s the case for many of us — life just seems to get busier all the time. And in the midst of the chaos, a little book appeared in my mailbox — A Eucharistic Christmas: Advent Meditations on the Presence of Christ. The cover was so peaceful, I had to take a moment and flip through its pages. Just a few minutes spent reading brought a sense of calm and the reminder of Jesus’ presence. For example:

eucharistic ChristmasCountless demands and activities of all sorts sweep us along so that we easily become disconnected from the Lord. He will daily recharge the batteries of our life and ministry…as we pray before the tabernacle and maintain our living relationship with Jesus.

This collection of meditations will definitely enhance the Advent season, but there’s always room for a little bit of Christmas in July!

"And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome, which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood.

I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will."

-Papa Francis quote

He does not know you, yet he prays for you.
He will most likely never meet you, yet he loves you.

This is your chance to show your love, for as the Bible teaches, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
