Filled with Joy

December 21
"One filled with Joy preaches without preaching."
-St. Teresa of Calcutta
Today's Reflection:
What is the underlying meaning of this quote? Do you believe that you are truly filled with joy based on your interactions and encounters with others? Do you "preach without preaching"? Today, ask our Lord to open your heart to a greater outpouring of joy, and await His lovely gift.

The one who serves God

December 20
"The soul of the one who serves God always swims in joy, always keeps holiday, and is always in the mood for singing."
-St. John of the Cross
Today's Reflection:
Are you swimming in joy and rejoicing this week? If not, place it at the foot of the cross and give God any discouragement you are experiencing. Surely, He will transform it!

Joy is the true gift of Christmas

December 17
"Joy is the true gift of Christmas, not the expensive gifts that call for time and money. We can communicate this joy simply: with a smile, a kind gesture, a little help, forgiveness. And the joy we give will certainly come back to us.... Let us pray that this presence of the liberating joy of God shines forth in our lives."
-Pope Benedict XVI
Today's Reflection:
Christmas day is a week from tomorrow! This week, let's prepare our hearts a little deeper to receive our Lord. Today, how can you "communicate this joy" a tad more? Who can you forgive? Who has God presented to you to help or offer some kindness? In so doing, thank Him for the opportunity to serve and love just a drop more!
