SOLEMNITY OF MARY, HOLY MOTHER OF GOD / OCTAVE DAY OF THE NATIVITY
Make a free and fresh beginning

Turning a new page on the calendar always invites a fresh perspective—even more so when it’s a brand-new calendar! So lose your chains. You’re invited today to let go of the old year, both “what we have done” and “what we have failed to do.” Time to give and receive pardon for offenses. Time to craft resolutions and adopt new habits. Time to become people of justice and peace. On this eighth and final day of Christmas, accept the gift of your true identity: a free child of God, heir to a land of relentless hope.

TODAY'S READINGS: Numbers 6:22-27; Galatians 4:4-7; Luke 2:16-21 (18). “You are no longer a slave but a child, and if a child then also an heir, through God.”

ALWAYS BE READY

A mother was explaining, to her little girl, the death of her father. The mother said: “God has sent for your father and will send for us, but I do not know just when.” Finally, the little girl said: “If we do not know just when God is going to send for us, do you not think we had better pack up and get ready to go? God might send when we are not ready.”
