HOMILY FOR MONDAY (DECEMBER 21,2020) THE FOURTH WEEK OF ADVENT    

Songs 2:8-14; Psalm 32; Luke 1:39-45

In the Gospel Mary travells to the hill country of Judah to be with her cousin, Elizabeth, and to rejoice in her pregnancy. This visit brought joy to the home of Elizabeth. We too can be agents of divine visitation to others, bringing them joy, love and peace. Season of Christmas is also a period of visitation, endeavour to visit your relatives and friends, share with them and make them happy. Find time to visit the sick or those in prison. Be an agent of God’s love; the first reading refers to God as the Groom who wants his beloved to be with him in happiness and love. 

 

Let us pray

Hear in kindness, O Lord, the prayers of your people, that those who rejoice at the coming of your Only Begotten Son in our flesh, may, when at last he comes in glory, gain the reward of eternal life. Amen
