Today’s Reflection: The name of Jesus is light, and food, and medicine. It is light, when it is preached to us; it is food, when we think upon it; it is the medicine that soothes our pains when we invoke it. — St. Bernard of Clairvaux.

Today’s Reflection: Our life of faith most often walks in the night. The more faith has to confront trials, the stronger it becomes. Nights of faith always end with finding the little light of God. — Robert Cardinal Sarah, from the book God or Nothing.

Morning Offering: 12. 12. 22

Today’s Reflection: Lord Jesus,
Master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.
We who have so much to do and seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day,
We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence.
We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.
To you we say, “Come Lord Jesus!’
Amen. — Henri Nouwen.

Today’s Reflection: First Sunday of Advent – Advent is a quiet contemplative time of waiting for the Light that will come and shine on us Christmas Day, rescuing us from the great darkness and hopelessness we experience in our daily lives. Advent then is a very special season of hope that links the coming of the promised Messiah in Jesus with the coming of Christ into our own hearts after a period of preparation, and with the coming of Christ again at the end of time. — Brother Victoire-Antoine D’Avila-Latourrette, A Monastic Year.
