01 Dec Blessed are We (Lk 10:24) by Dr. Pat Castle
“[Jesus] said, many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.” ~ Lk 10:24 (full readings)
Pat’s Reflections: Blessed are the LIFE Runners who see and hear the goodness of the Lord and act on it. As we put our Pro-Life faith in action, serving the least of the least (the Unborn), we step our way closer to an eternity that is All In Christ. Simply desiring God isn’t enough, we are called to reach out to God through our service to neighbor. Acts of faith transform our desires into a living faith. The Christ-mas season provides so many opportunities for acts of faith. How does Christ want us to celebrate His birthday season? He said that whatever we do for the least of these, we do for Him. Therefore, in the form of prayers and service, let’s give Christ’s birthday presents to the Unborn, elderly, foster children, handicapped, homeless, prisoners, post-abortion mothers, and others seriously wounded by sin. Blessed are we who are called to be like an advent wreath candle with Light reaching those in need of Christ’s birthday gifts. Amen.

Faith Quote: “The task for a Christian is to drown evil in an abundance of good. We should live positively, full of optimism, joy and peace. We should be understanding with the followers of Christ and with those who abandon him, or do not know Him at all. But understanding does not mean holding back, or remaining indifferent, but being active.” ~ St. Josemaria Escriva
