20160128_134532.jpgToday at Holy Mass, 19th December, at the Homily, our priest spoke of the Birth of Jesus Christ. He spoke of one story goes of a saint or mystic who had asked Jesus what was it like for Our Lady, a new mother to give birth to her baby in a manger. (I mean which mother today would like her baby to be born in a manger! A mother takes great care and preparation for the new born baby for 9 months.) Jesus replied that Our Lady had said ‘Thank you God’. She was humble and accepting of her state in life. We can learn from Our Mother to be humble and accept God’s Will in our life.

They ask questions about this simple scene, the story of Baby Jesus, the King of Kings, born in the poorest place on earth. Their parents explain to them the birth of Jesus. They point, they ask innocent questions. They love Christmas, they love the Nativity. We can learn a lot from children as Jesus says ‘Let the little children come unto me, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven’.

During this Advent week approaching the Birth of Christ, let us meditate on how we can become humble, accepting God’s Will in our life today, at this moment and thanking God for everything. Some ways we can do this is to meditate on Scripture Readings daily on a scripture passage, the Daily Readings for Mass, attending Daily Mass, saying the Rosary daily, Divine Mercy chaplet. Eucharistic Adoration is great for spending quiet time before our Lord.  You can have a normal conversation as you would have with a friend, talk to Jesus and tell Him everything, all your worries, your life story and ask Him questions too. He will first of all comfort you, the peace that the world cannot give you, He will give you, He will calm you down, strengthen you and tell you what you need to do, but you have to change your stubborn ways and listen to His Voice!

Gratitude is the key to life’s happiness, being grateful for each day, for little Blessings, for God’s Creation all around us, for our families, our friends, our home, food, water, jobs, money. He has given us everything we need. Thank you Jesus! Help us to be meek and humble of heart Amen!

Merry Christmas to all our friends!

And when you’re in love with Jesus, you’re going to love your wife more, you’re going to love your husband more, you’re going to love your children more, because only the Love of Jesus can make you love deeply, truly’.
