Day 7 – Advent with the Saints

How To Tame My Crazy Schedule

The beauty of the human heart is that it is always seeking something more, a sense of purpose. But as part of our fallen human nature, we have a tendency to fill this poverty of our hearts with the need to busy ourselves, being in control, and doing more than being!  

But if we pause and gaze upon our Lord, we would discover that he has been seeking us all along. He’s just waiting for us to turn toward him.

In today’s “Advent with the Saints” reflection on the life of St. Sabas, we find God’s loving pursuit for each one of us gives meaning and order to all we do. 

 Today’s Saint – St. Sabas

Our Saint of the Day is St. Sabas.  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.
