December 21st – Fourth Monday of Advent

21Today’s Gospel

“‘How does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?’ (Luke 1:43).”

Daily Advent Reflection

The Gospel reading today is the same as yesterday, the account of the Visitation from Luke’s Gospel. Elizabeth feels honored that Mary, the mother of God, has come to visit her. We too feel honored when we become aware of God’s presence in our lives, guiding us towards Him.

Daily Advent Challenge

“Today I pray that I can continue to feel honoured by God’s presence in my life and in thanksgiving for that faithfulness and love, I will visit someone in need or phone someone who would appreciate that call. I will then reflect on the gifts that I received through doing that.”
