Daily Bible Reflections - December 21,2012

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord will fulfill his promises to her.” – Luke 1:45
I envy our Blessed Mother. The Lord had created her with such a pure heart that obedience to His will and faith in His promises were but natural responses from her. Though gentle in spirit, she had showed a single-minded determination to see to it that the Father’s divine plan is carried out — from the time she gave birth to Jesus and held Him for the first time, until the moment of His death when she held His battered and lifeless body after His agony on the Cross. Through immense joy and deep sorrow, Mary believed.
Over the years, the happiness that accompanies the Christmas season has gradually faded in the shadow of my concerns and problems, stress from work and projects, as well as the sadness of missing my dad who has passed away.
Though the darkness of depression looms, I hold on to the hope that the birth of the Christ Child brings to all the faithful.
Four days from now, we will celebrate the coming of Jesus, Light of the World. And all the earth shall rejoice! I know I will, too. Dina Pecaña (dpecana@yahoo.com)
Darkness is not dark after all — it is just light in hiding waiting to emerge.
Jesus, Light of the World, let Your radiance penetrate the darkness of my depression, fears and sadness. Give me the grace to experience the joy that Your coming into my life brings.
St. Peter Canisius, priest and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
