Share the Light – Reflections on Advent and Christmas 2012

The following reflections were submitted by parishioners as part of their spiritual practices for Advent.  We will publish one reflection a day for the rest of January.

It was Christmas morning and the phone rang. A friend wanted to stop by and visit the woman who was recovering from a recent surgery.  The friend came bearing cookies and stayed for a cup of tea and wonderful conversation. Little did she know how much she made Christmas for that family that day. 

The shepherds came unannounced to the stable behind the inn,  as well as the sages who came from the East in the impressive caravan.  An old man and an old woman stopped them in the temple, very unexpectedly. In all of these encounters the beauty of Christmas was experienced by the family that was wondering “why all these visitors?”

At Annie's Attic - in Louisville - the owner has for years collected not for children but for the people left behind in nursing homes.  She has given necessities and toys (all ages love them) and love to people who have no family or families who have forgotten them.  She represents God on earth to me.

Reflections on Sunday’s Reading: January 27, 2013

St. PaulThis is the 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time. Paul challenged the Corinthians to quit comparing one person against another; to quit trying to determine who is greater or more important. Rather, he says, all are part of the whole. No one can function without the others. All are equally essential to the Body of Christ.

Roman Catholicism deeply embraces this teaching. Our baptism connects us, makes us one body. We are so intimately united that our Church cannot function without each of us living our role(s). Whether married or single, lay or clergy, we are all called to use our gifts for the benefit of all, of Church.

Our faith is closely tied to community, to our relationship with one another. Just at the Triune God is three persons in one, so too are we millions called to be one Church. Paul tells us we are “in one spirit we were all baptized into one body.” Later in the same passage he writes that “God has placed the parts, each member, of the body into the place he wanted it to be.”

How much this message is needed in today’s world! Imagine our society, and our Roman Catholic Church, if each of us acknowledged who we are – without exaggeration, whether that is of our goodness or our sin. If we each determined our giftedness and then, without prejudice, offered what we have for the good of all. What a witness!

Most notably for me are the words in the eulogy of Bill Warde, which he shared with his family. What a thoughtful reminder of our role as Christians. "I aspire to inspire before I expire."

ND AcademyThe following reflections were submitted by parishioners as part of their spiritual practices for Advent.  We will publish one reflection a day for the rest of January.

In honor of Our Lady this Christmas, Notre Dame Academy has given our community a special gift. From the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8 until January of 2013, NDA will project the image of the Madonna and Child on the side of  their building. The silhouette of the Blessed Mother and Baby Jesus is a beautiful devotion to Mary and the true meaning of Christmas.
