Mary’s Dream!

Mary’s Dream!

Joseph, last night I had a dream that I don’t understand. It was about celebrating our Son’s birthday. People prepared for weeks. Everyone was busy buying many gifts and decorating their homes. Something was strange. The gifts were not for our Son. They would wrap them beautifully and put them under a tree. Its branches had colorful balls and ornaments. On top of the tree was an angel. Everything was beautiful!

Holy Family 200xEveryone seemed to be happy and excited at the gifts they gave and received. But Joseph, they gave nothing to our Son. I don’t think they even know Him. They didn’t even mention His name. Isn’t it very strange Joseph that people would put so much effort into the birthday of someone they don’t even know?

Jesus would feel like a stranger at His birthday party. Everything was beautiful and everyone was busy with the celebration. I felt like crying because our Son was ignored. How sad for Jesus not to be part of His own birthday! I’m happy that it was a dream. How terrible for everyone if it were true.

Christmas is celebrated by over 2 billion people worldwide. It’s the greatest global celebration! Fact is, 94% of Americans celebrate Christmas, 4% celebrate Hanukkah and 2% celebrate Kwanzaa. Over 87% of Americans agree that Nativity scenes should be allowed; only 9% disagree.

Christmas is when most merchants turn a profit. They have secularized Christmas while profiting and denying Christians the real reason for the season! We do not give Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or New Years gifts’. It is Christmas and the birth of Jesus that we celebrate!

This Christmas, give a gift in someone’s name to a homeless shelter, Missionaries of the Poor, Pregnancy Center or Life-Saver Ads. Your gift will keep on giving, well beyond this Christmas season! Continue reading

May We Recognize Jesus In Our World Today

Pro Life Corner – Christmas 2014 – Have we prepared the way of the Lord?  Are we willing to follow the way of Mary to say yes to God’s will in our lives? Are we willing to allow Him into our homes? Mary said ‘yes’ to God physically living within her. Mary was a holy and sacred temple of God in the truest sense.  So are we. God wants to live in our hearts and our souls and our homes.  He really wants to live in us. He really wants to make an effect in our life just like he made an incredible effect in Mary’s Life and in Joseph’s life. He really wants to give you His peace. He really wants to give  you His mercy. He really wants to give you His love. What should be  our response to that?  To follow Mary’s example, and say I am a handmaid of the Lord.  Let it be done to me according to your Word.

What Is A Family?

ProLifeCorner.com-  The culture of death is attacking the family unit, now more than any other time in our history.

In today’s video we are asked what is a family?  The answers are in Holy Scripture.  In the family, each one of us have a responsibility to ourselves and the other family members. We are also shown how our families are part of the domestic church.  This is a call for us to be not only family but to be a holy family using Jesus, Mary, and Joseph as our examples of a true Holy Family.
