Maybe It Just Needs A Little Love (#804, Advent 3)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Third Sunday of Advent (Year B) • There is no such thing as a perfect tree. Maybe it just needs a little love. Christmas is all about love: God who loves us and sends his Son to us, even though we aren’t perfect. We must be humble enough to receive what God wants to send us. Being loved by God fills us with joy. So practice Christmas carols and you’ll be ready to rejoice at the coming of Christ.

Point to Ponder: What do you have to get rid of so you can humbly receive God’s love for you?

Point to Discuss: What does it mean to just “let Christmas happen” this year? Talk to your spouse or a friend about how to keep Christmas focused on what matters.

Point for Action: Practice singing your favorite Christmas carols this week.
