FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT

December 17/18, 2011

FOOD FOR THE WEEK

 

Reading I                             2 Samuel 7.1-5, 8b-12, 14a, 16

Responsorial Psalm:             Forever I will sing of your steadfast love, O Lord.

Reading II                            Romans 16.25-27

Gospel:                                Luke 1.26-38

 

·         Christmas highlights the belief that God is in all of us.  We can ignore that, or we can help God be found in all of us.  God is active through each of us for each other.

·         In the visit of Mary, God came close to Elizabeth in the ordinary and homely moments of every day.  These Advent and Christmas days give us the space to allow the huge, eternal mystery become part of the everyday.
