Today’s Readings

“Give us this day our daily bread.”
– The Lord’s Prayer

Today, amid our second week of preparation for Jesus’ birth, let us set a moment of our busyness aside. We reflect on our “to do’s” for the day. How are they life-giving to us? How are they life-giving to others? Amid our “daily grind”, let us discover the community of life, which sustains us.

Our Father, thy will be done today. Amen.

Act: Listen to the Lord’s Prayer recited in Aramaic, a language very similar to that of Jesus. Reflect on the fact that Christians all over the world recite this same prayer in their native languages.
