“It is Christmas every time you let God love others through you.”
-Saint Teresa of Calcutta
I wasn’t going to post this meditation today because it is the joy filled season of Christmas, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought it is appropriate, especially because many find themselves lonely at Christmas time. I wrote this while in adoration yesterday;
I hear you whisper to me, “run toward the suffering.” Every human inclination in me says, “no, I must run away from it.” But the God mark on my soul pulls stronger. “Run towards the suffering. Embrace the lonely and broken people, lift them up. Don’t let them be alone. We are made for Communion.” And in those moments I want to throw myself on the cross. I say, “yes, Lord, I will run toward the suffering. I will embrace my fellow man in these darkest of nights; Because I can see the light of the cross.” And I hear you whisper, “hope.” And I know that heaven is real and it awaits and I have nothing to fear.

During this Christmas Season;
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
