Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Seminarian Collection

We are called to return our blessings to God and your generosity impacts lives. Your gift supports seminarians during their formation and discernment of the vocation to priesthood. There are four pillars of priestly formation that guide the development toward ordination. They are: human, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral. During formation seminarians minister to the community by serving the people of God. Our seminarians are answering God’s call and they are the vital leadership for the future of our Church.

Praying the Word

December 25, 2021 THE NATIVITY OF THE LORD-C

Isaiah 9:1-6

Psalm 96

Titus 2:11-14

Luke 2:1-14

…because there was no room for them in the inn.  Lk. 2:7

Lord, if I was there in the stable of your birth would I see in your fragile humanity the Lord of Lords, King of Kings and Creator of the universe?  I’m sorry there was no room for you in the inn.  Your first moments on earth were spent in a cold, smelly and dirty place for livestock.  Your last moments would be on a hill hanging on a cross bleeding to death.  You experienced rejection at the start and at the end of your life with us.   Lord, as I celebrate your birthday, I want to make room for you in my heart.  If you live in my heart, you will make me a better spouse, grandparent, son or daughter.  Help me to clear out a space for you not just for today but for every day.  Emmanuel, God is with us.  Amen.
