Last daily Mass homily before Christmas!: Thursday, December 22nd, 2016
Listen to the homily here.
The scriptures continues to show joyfulness for life
o She was praying before a priest: Eli and he said she was drunk
o “‘Pardon, my lord! As you live, my lord, I am the woman who stood near you here, praying to the LORD. I prayed for this child, and the LORD granted my request. Now I, in turn, give him to the LORD; as long as he lives, he shall be dedicated to the LORD.’ She left Samuel there.”
· Then she offered her prayer in the Responsorial Psalm
o “My heart exults in the LORD, my horn is exalted in my God…”
· Then Mother Mary shares her prayer
o “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.”
o Magnificat—every evening prayer
The nature is growing with the light of the sun
The life of a child is shared with Hannah and Mother Mary
We are two days to Christmas!
