Inspired by the Spirit, Women respond to God's Call

 


Week #2- Second Sunday in Advent

December 9 -15

 

“…You do well if you really fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’  But if you show partiality, you commit sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.…” James 2:8-9  NRSV Catholic Edition

 

Read  James 2:1-9

 

Meditate on what you have read…

     -have we been judgemental

     -have we separated people into “classes”

     -have we always shown love to our neighbour

 

Reflect:      Saint Mother Theresa saw the face of Christ in all of those she encountered…

     How easy is that to do, today, in the world in which we live?

 

Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet.  Allow it to touch your heart.  Pray that The Father will have mercy on us, for all of the times we have judged those we meet.

 

Act:   Volunteer some time at a soup kitchen or food bank.  If that is not possible, contribute to those in need, in some other way.

 


 

 

Week # 1- First Sunday of Advent

December 2 – 8

“…who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead…a Samaritan while travelling came near him and was moved with pity….he brought him to an inn, and took care of him.  Luke 10:32/33/34-35. NRSV Catholic Edition

Read  Luke 10:29-37

Meditate on what you have read….how many times have we passed by someone in need

     -how have you felt; what were your first thoughts

     -did you have regrets

     -did you follow your first instinct…was it to help or to ignore

     -was any mercy shown

Reflect:      Pope Benedict has said that mercy is the center of the Gospel message

    Mercy is the second name for “love”

    Mercy is a particular kind of love; a particular mode of love, when suffering, poverty 

    and brokenness are encountered

Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet.  Allow it to touch your heart.  Pray for those who are lonely or abandoned and are in need of the gift of our time.

Action:    Send a card, make a phone call or spend some time with someone you know, who is experiencing loneliness; give of your time; give of yourself and show you care about them.
