TK U!
Christmas, the celebration of the coming of Our Lord into this
world, is now only a few days away. Take some time each day this
week to reflect on what it means that God Himself entered into
our world in so humble a way as He did to become Emmanuel, ‘God
with us’. Reflect, too, on Mary’s humility in bringing Jesus to us.
How can you, too, bring Christ more fully into the lives of others?
