Today’s Readings

“And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is right.”
– 2 Thessalonians 3:13

Reflect: Today is the middle of the first week of Advent. Let us remain enthusiastic in our prayer. Let us not tire or become bored with the everyday. When we feel despair or exhaustion, we can turn to Christ and to one another, enveloping a human partnership of support with the Divine. Help us to remember that a hopeful Christ is ever-present in our lives.

God, light within me a spark of vigor for meaningful life. Amen.

Act: Read the stories about the people CRS serves in Benin.
