"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

6th Day of the Christmas Novena

Jesus Christ, the true light that enlightens everyone.
1. Called to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, "the true light that enlightens everyone" (Jn 1:9), people become "light in the Lord" and "children of light" (Eph 5:8), and are made holy by "obedience to the truth" (1 Pet 1:22). - Veritatis Splendor
O Infant God, all who approach you with simplicity feel the sanctifying influence of your presence and the warmth of your love.  Grant to us through your Holy Mother, a tender remembrance of your infancy so that we may experience more often the joy of your companionship and the strength of your virtues.  Amen.

    Has anyone heard how Michael's surgery went? Please let us know ASAP. Thanks.

  2. Elisabeta - I don't know how we will know - I only know Michael through the blog and do not know anyone who knows him personally. Thanks for your good prayers - we just have to wait.
