A reflection on today's Sacred Scripture:

"The saving power of God"

Just imagine walking along with your companion and seeing Jesus walk
by and recognize Him! Then imagine Jesus asking you the same question
"What are you looking for." There is within each of us a nagging
unrest, which leaves us yearning and longing for something we cannot
even identify. This is our longing for God! He has come among us
again in a powerful way during this holy season of Christmas. He has
gifted us again with new grace and His blessed peace. The Psalmist
tells us that the Lord comes to rule the earth with justice and the
people with equity. Our world is a far cry from what our dear Savior
has in mind for us.

What are you looking for? Is it peace in your life? Is it a better
job? Is it sickness that you would like to be healed from? Is it
dissension in your family? The list could go on forever. But whatever
your need, big or small, the Master is saying to you "Come!"

Come and see what a difference He can make in your life as you
develop a personal relationship with Him. He waits knocking at the
door of your heart, but you must open the door from your side to let
Him in.

O come, Divine Messiah,
draw us closer
to your Most Sacred Heart!
Amen.
