Day 25 – Advent with the Saints
Ambassadors for Christ:
What Weapons Can I Use to Convince Others of the Truth of Our Faith?
Spending the Christmas season with loved ones while filled with much joy can also be challenging at times.
There are increased opportunities for conversing to share thoughts, ideas, and experiences. Several topics, including our faith, can provoke heated debate and discussion more than talk about the weather.
Especially this year, many feel overwhelmed, anxious, and concerned about many things outside their control. The busyness of the season can bring out more stress than joy. We need to leave space for quiet and reflection, prayer, and praise – and seek to listen to God and others.
Our belief in Christ is most powerfully shared through our humble and meek witness to be his ambassador. Remember to ask for the grace of patience, sweetness, and love in dealing with others this season.
Listen to today’s “Advent with the Saints” reflection inspired by St. John of Kanty and how he gave humble witness to Christ.
