Day 11 – Advent with the Saints
Keeping it Real:
How Can I Follow The Example Of The Martyrs Amid My Small Struggles?
Advent is all about preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ. And so it’s a good time to ask ourselves, “Are we prepared?” And how are we preparing others in the opportunities of our daily lives?
Each one of us is entrusted with continuing Christ’s plan for salvation. We can’t be sitting around, waiting, doing nothing…we need to be recollected, standing up, and putting our best foot forward.
This is what it means to be a Christian in the world today. Let’s build his Kingdom through the powerful combination of prayer and action to put our gifts at the service of others. Listen to today’s “Advent with the Saint’s” audio reflection to be encouraged by the lives of the martyrs’ faithfulness.
