On the Fourth Sunday of Advent, the gospel reading (Luke 1:26-38) recalls Mary’s openness to God’s will to bear Jesus. Let us follow her example of obedience and share God’s love with the world.
Prayer of the Day
Stir up your power, Lord Christ, and come. With your abundant grace and might, free us from the sin that would obstruct your mercy, that willingly we may bear your redeeming love to all the world, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
