Wednesday, Fourth Week of Advent ( O Emmanuel, St. John of Kanty)
Blessed Memorial of St. John of Kanty!
You can find his story here.
Our King and Lawgiver,
The Awaited one of the peoples
And their Savior
Come to save us, O Lord, our God
Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign. Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son
and his name shall be called Emmanuel.
(see also Matthew 1:22)
James 2:14-17 (Faith without works is dead)
Psalm 112:1-9 “Blessed the one who gives to the poor”
+ Luke 6:27-38 (Do good to those who hate you)
The one who gives
(no strings attached)
that the Lord
and will repay
as if He owed a debt
I’ll never get
from the ones
who love me
than from the One
when I extend
to my antagonist.
Do I trust God to provide for my enemies through me?
