Day 5 – Advent with the Saints

Worship: How Can I Avoid Falling into Intellectual Pride?

“O come let us adore him.” These lyrics were written for the Christmas season, but the words should be imprinted on our hearts throughout the year. 

In each liturgy, we are invited to praise, worship, and adore our Savior, Jesus Christ. The mass is the heart that brings life to the body of Christ. Without it, we cannot become the saints God created us to be.

Intellectual pride can be an obstacle in our spiritual life. In our daily Advent audio reflection on St. Francis Xavier, we invite you to reflect on renewing your commitment to worship God and receive the grace to become a saint.

Today’s Saint – St. Francis Xavier

Our Saint of the Day is St. Francis Xavier.  Listen to Uncle Eddy* as he invites us to use this saint’s example to inspire us to live our best life in Christ!


*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.

If you would like to receive these in your email each morning
as they are released, sign up HERE.
