Machnamh / Reflection
This Advent I pray
To live deeply, with purpose
To live freely, with detachment
To live wisely, with humility
To live justly, with compassion
To live lovingly, with fidelity
To live mindfully, with awareness
To live gratefully, with generosity
To live fully, with enthusiasm
Help me to hold this vision
and to daily renew it in my heart
becoming ever more one with you
during this holy season of Advent.

Just a Thought / Smaoineamh

We bless the wreath of this holy season.
An endless circle of God’s Presence.
An ever-green, ever-fresh outreach to us and all people.
A light of the World.
May this wreath always speak to us of the
Presence of God in our lives.
Come Lord Jesus, like the dawn from on High,
give light to those in darkness
and guide us into the way of peace.
