HUMBLY SERVE ALL WITH A CHILDLIKE SPIRIT
STAY AWAKE AND ACTIVE!!!
In today’s Gospel reading, Jesus Christ tells us to always stay awake and be ready, since the Son of man is coming at an hour we do not expect. So, in this First Sunday of Advent Season, as we prepare for the celebration of Christmas and Christ’s Parousia, how can we always remain actively awake?
A CALL TO EMULATE THE SAINTS!
Today, the Church celebrates the victory of our God in the company of all the redeemed in Heaven. She venerates those who through their life struggles lived exemplary lives, even though they were not officially canonized. If we purify ourselves through righteous living, then we shall surely triumph in the end like these Saints by the Power of the Holy Spirit.
THE SECRET OF QUICK ANSWERS TO PRAYERS!
Prayer is what sustains our life, without which our life becomes meaningless. Jesus Christ tells us that “Whatever we ask in His name He will do.” But why is it that many people have been praying, yet God seems to be silent? Does it mean that God doesn’t answer prayers anymore? Of course, He does! Perhaps, the right disposition for effective prayer that will move God to respond speedily is lacking.
