Lord Jesus, be born in each of us today. Shine your light into our hearts and in our lives. Help us to be Christ-bearers, bringing your light to a world that needs you. “And the Word became flesh, and made his dwelling among us.”

Mary’s trust in God brought her profound blessings as we hear Elizabeth tell her, “blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.” We ask for grace for this same kind of trust so we, too, can be open to God’s plan for our lives.

St. Augustine tells us that John the Baptist knew exactly who he was and how God wanted to use him…as a voice crying out in the wilderness, urging us to prepare our hearts for the one who was, and is, to come.

Mary illuminates the way to follow the Lord by making space in her heart—first to hear His voice, then doing what He asks. Let’s also ask for the grace to respond to the Lord when He calls us, “Be it done to me according to your word.”

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me - On this day of abundance we remember those who will go without.

In today’s Gospel Jesus preaches a new decalogue in his Sermon on the Mount, showing us how to become saints—by being merciful, having a clean heart, and being meek. I pray that we all continue to listen to the Lord’s voice on our own path to holiness.

We also are praying for the local police officers impacted during this senseless and despicable act of violence. May God bless all those lost and the injured.

We are praying for our brothers and sisters at Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh suffering from today’s shooting at this Synagogue. On this Sabbath day, when our Jewish brethren observe a day of rest and worship, we embrace them in their anguish.
