Thought for the day: It is good to stop from time to time and ask myself, what am I looking for? This can be answered in the ideal: “what do I think I should be looking for?” or in the real: “what do I actually want as evidenced by my choices and actions?” To move from one to the other we need the grace of dissatisfaction. In the words of Augustine, “You must be dissatisfied with the way you are now, if you ever want to get to where you are not yet.” (Sermon 169). Prayer: Shake us up, Lord, and help us to see ourselves as we truly are, often settling for less, for the moderately good and the reasonably faithful. Give us a longing for more, for all you have in store for us, and on the way bless us with exhilaration that we may be joyful bearers of your Good News.

Pope Francis on X: One word in particular resounds in the two principal Christian feasts. That word is “peace”. Peace is primarily a gift of God, but it is also a responsibility incumbent upon all of us.

Diocesan Collection for the Needs of the Holy Land will be taken up this weekend January 13th/14th as a second collection after Communion.
