The Family God’s Most Beautiful Creation
The most beautiful thing God made …so the Bible tells us …was the
family. He created man and woman. And gave them everything. He entrusted
the world to them: "Grow, multiply, cultivate the earth, make it bear
fruit, let it grow.
All the love he put into that marvellous creation he entrusted to a
family". ( Pope Francis, Philadelphia Sept 26th 2015) Diocesan Pastoral

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
We are surrounded these days by the commercial ‘circus’ of Christmas
shopping and ‘getting ready ‘ It might seem far removed from the story
that we are celebrating; the story of a poor refugee family 2,000 years
ago who had a very special delivery. The story of God choosing to
intervene in human history in such an intimate and shocking way: God
choosing to be born into a situation of poverty and danger. It is good
to ask ourselves at this time of year, what are we getting ourselves
ready for? Advent is a wonderful season which invites us to use our
waiting to grow spiritually. We are invited to make space for ourselves
and for God in the midst of the rushing. Can we stop and be still and
ask ourselves: " Where do I see God being born around me today?’ In kind
words and gestures? In my community? In my own heart?`
Have a more ‘aware’ Advent. Be mindful in all you do. Be aware in
that queue, be aware as you eat, be aware of your feelings, be aware of
your thoughts. By watching all of this we become more awake, more able
to recognise our true selves and more able to see God being born
continuously each day within us and around us. Our awe and wonder grows
and we can be prepared for the coming of the Gift himself. How we
prepare determines what will be.
