We close out the Christmas octave with a day to honour Mary as the Mother of God.

Gospel Reflection

The Manger. The shepherds find Jesus, not in a crib, but in a manger, a feedbox for cattle. This image reminds us that he is indeed food for us now – Body and Blood in Communion. Let us also be amazed.

  • What continues to amaze me about Jesus’ gift of himself?
  • How can I glorify and praise God this day and this new year?
  • What mercy work can I do to help those in need of shelter?
