Tuesday First Week of Advent

Heavenly Father, stir in our heart a greater passion to share your love with the world. May our life, our wealth, and our anxiety be used to do more of your work throughout the world. Please bless the efforts of all those who share the Gospel of Jesus in a culture other than their own. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 10:21-24)
Today’s Gospel tells us that God is both Father and Lord of earth as well as heaven. He is both maker and Author of all that he has made, the first source of everything and inspirational authority, and at the same time, kindness and loving care for all his children. All fatherhood and motherhood are resulting from him. Jesus' prayer also contains a caution that pride can keep us from the love and understanding of God. Pride closes the heart to God's truth and wisdom for our lives. Jesus separates pride with child-like simplicity and humbleness. The simple of heart are like "babes" in the intelligence that they see merely without pretense and admit their dependence and trust in God who is the foundation of all wisdom and strength. Simplicity of heart is committed with humility, the queen of virtues, because humbleness inclines the heart towards loveliness and truth. Just as pride is the origin of every sin and evil we can visualize, so humility is the only soil in which the grace of God can take source. It alone takes the right approach before God and permits him as God to do all. "God be against the proud, but gives grace to the humble". The grace of Christ-like humbleness inclines us towards God and organizes us to receive God's wisdom, loveliness, and help. Nothing can give us better joy than the understanding that we are God's dearly loved and that our names are written in heaven. Do we seek God's wisdom and loveliness with humbleness and trust?
