On this holy night, ponder the little Child whose life brought life to the world…

2 Corinthians 2:15-16 For we are the aroma of Christ for God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to the latter an odor of death that leads to death, to the former an odor of life that leads to life.

“My child on this holy night, ponder the life of your Infant King. See how those who were destined for salvation, the humble, the lowly, accepted with gratitude the gift offered, the sweet smell of eternal life. But to others, the smell of eternal life is an affront , for they are steeped in death and decay. That is why Herod sought the death of the Prince of Peace. Death begets death and many are the innocent who suffer for this. Child, there are many Herods in your day, those who feel threatened by life at its first moments, those who worship destruction and call it something else—they are white-washed tombs! My beloved, on this holy night, ponder the little Child whose life brought life to the world. Implore him to infuse into this culture of death a deep thirst for life. My child, pray on this night, and many favors will be granted.”

Jesus I thank you for this night of favor! Infant King, infuse into this culture of death a deep, abiding thirst for life. Let those who are plotting death be converted, and embrace life, for the glory of God! Jesus, Infant King, I adore you! Save souls! Amen.

  1. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of your presence to the world; and for your angels and saints who love us and aid us–especially Mother Mary and St. Joseph…

    From our dearly beloved Venerable John Paul II:

    Every day is Christmas in the hearts of Christians. And every day we are called to proclaim the message of Bethlehem to the world–good news of great joy. The Eternal Word, God from God, Light from Light, has become flesh and has made his dwelling among us.

  2. And from our dearly beloved Pope Benedict XVI:

    ‘By the power of the Holy Spirit he was born of the Virgin Mary.’ We genuflect at this clause, because at this point the heavens, the veil behind which God is secluded, are swept aside, and the mystery touches us directly. The distant God becomes our God, becomes ‘Emmanuel–God with us’ (Mt 1:23.)

Dear Lord shine your Light of Truth and Peace into our hearts so GOD will pour His Love into our little hearts and we may pour such Love into GOd. may we be in constant reciprocation of Love.

  4. Mary Therese, I read Mark Malletts blog and immediately thought of this site in Colombia. I am a geologist, and as a scientist there is no other way to explain this image other than divine. Its the link I always send to everyone that wants to argue with me about the existence of God. We should send this to whoever wrote that childish statement at the State Capitol in Illinois

  5. After doing some research, Steve, the path that we need to take is prayer for atheists, agnostics, and all those who follow no god or the wrong god. We must pray that Our Lord shines light into their darkness, that they may long for His Light… And He requested that we implore this of Him; and so let us do this for Him!

    1. A blessed Octave of Christmas to all!

      That is an amazing sign, Steve. Thank you for sharing it. There are indeed plenty of signs that God exists–for those who have eyes to see! We need to pray for the blind, that their sight may be restored. On a good day, our words may be able to change someone’s mind, but our prayers have the power through grace, to change hearts. That is why our Lord implores us to pray for sinners. It is not their minds he wants, but their hearts. The mystery is that he uses the prayers of weak humans to accomplish this, but it is tied to the gift of free will; what the children of freedom do in his name has power to change the world one heart at a time.

      God be with you all dear friends, at this holy time.
