Advent Daybook - Day 8


Prepare the swaddling clothes for the Divine Infant by folding your hands when you pray, and by praying slowly and thoughtfully.  Jesus, let me love you more and more.

Bible Verse:

Serve the Lord

I guess my son took this to heart today :)  He had the privilege of serving Mass with the Bishop.  Just love to watch him serve!

As a bonus, we all got to take a picture with the Bishop, too! 

Thoughts from Mass:

"And this is my prayer: that your love may increase more and more..."

"Prepare the way of the Lord"  We must recognize the Lord coming to us in our lives.  Then we must bring Christ to others, but we must do it in such a way that they can recognize that Christ is coming to them.

Advent Activities:

Today after Mass we had our Knight's of Columbus Breakfast with Santa.  Everyone who attends brings a toy that the Knights then distribute to families in need.  It's always a nice breakfast and Santa is great, too!

After that we went to visit a wonderful man from our parish who is dying from cancer.  He sang in the choir with the girls and so they sang his favorite Christmas carol to him.  Needless to say I was bawling.

Later in the day we went to celebrate the feast of St. Juan Diego by attending the premier performance of Ballet Folklorico Tepeyac.  This is a group of our homeschooling friends who have been learning Mexican dancing and tonight they put on a wonderful display of their hard work.  

God Bless!
