Reflect: Mary and Joseph were not unlike many of the world’s immigrants: simple, hard working, and poor. God purposefully chose them to lead his earthly Son through life. What responsibility and pride they must have felt for Jesus! Parents throughout the world share these strong feelings and hopes for their children. As the birth of Jesus approaches, let us ask ourselves: how can we support the children in our lives, in our world? And as members of a global family, how do we give hope to a world in need?
Pray: God, I pray for the health and well being of your earthly children. Help me to be an interceptor of your blessing. Amen.
Act: Send an anonymous note to a family you know, highlighting your admiration of their family unit.
