Day 3 – Advent with the Saints
Discerning the Lord’s Call:
How important is listening and discerning the Lord’s call in my life?
Weighing all the pros and cons. The good achieved is to follow the invitation of putting one’s life at the service of Christ’s Kingdom.
Familiarity can be one of the biggest threats to our faith lives. Just look at the Eucharist. For many of us, it can become familiar or routine, and we risk going through the motions during mass.
But receiving Christ should be anything but routine. Every mass is a new Bethlehem where Christ comes to be with us again and stays in the tabernacle of our very own bodies so we can encounter him personally. He is constantly seeking us out and coming to us in each moment of our lives.
For a deeper reflection on listening and discerning God’s call for your life, listen to Day 3 of our Advent reflections, “Advent with the Saints.”
Today’s Saint – St. Edmund Campion
*Not familiar with Uncle Eddy?
Meet Uncle Eddy. Navigating today’s world is tough and all of us could use a nudge in the right direction. Figuring out the right path to take at work, college, or with friends is not always easy. Before making some of those big (or small) decisions, see what Uncle Eddy has to say. A pseudonym for Fr. John Bartunek, LC, Uncle Eddy, is an imaginary uncle who has been imprisoned for the Catholic Faith. Pointing toward the lives of the saints he sends a daily email with spiritual advice to his many imaginary nieces and nephews. You can sign up to receive these daily emails all year HERE.
