Feast of Saint John, Apostle and evangelist

Luke 2:28-32: Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: "Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.
  PRAYER FOR THE DAY ...
Heavenly Father, not only do we pray for peace on our earth, but we pray that the knowledge of Jesus may be spread to every where this coming year. Please make us responsive to those around us who need your blessings and give us courage and the right words to say. Please stir us to be generous with those who are spreading your Gospel throughout the world. Please bind the work of Satan to keep nations in darkness and away from grace. Make your Kingdom triumph through the growth of your word throughout the world. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (John 20:1a and 2-8)
John in his first letter testifies: What we have seen, heard, and experienced we proclaim as the word of life which existed "from the beginning". John bears spectator to what has existed from all eternity. This "word of life" is Jesus the word became flesh, but also Jesus as the word announced by the prophets and Jesus the word now preached all over the world the Christian church for all ages to come. One thing is sure, if Jesus had not risen from the dead and appeared to his disciples, we would by no means have heard of him. Nothing else could have distorted sad and despairing men and women into people happy with joy and courage. The authenticity of the resurrection is the essential fact of the Christian faith. Through the reward of the Holy Spirit, the Lord gives us "eyes of faith" to identify him and the power of his resurrection. The most joy we can have is to encounter the living Christ and to know him for myself as our Savior and Lord.
