First Reading – 1 Peter 4:7-13 1 June 2018

I personally feel this is a very powerful reading, so please read and meditate on God’s word and I am sure you will surely have a message from God which would encourage you and make you a better person with a purpose in life.

1 June, 2018 – Saint Justin Martyr
First reading 1 Peter 4:7-13 ©
Each of you has received a special grace
Everything will soon come to an end, so, to pray better, keep a calm and sober mind. Above all, never let your love for each other grow insincere, since love covers over many a sin. Welcome each other into your houses without grumbling. Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these different graces of God, put yourselves at the service of others. If you are a speaker, speak in words which seem to come from God; if you are a helper, help as though every action was done at God’s orders; so that in everything God may receive the glory, through Jesus Christ, since to him alone belong all glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.
My dear people, you must not think it unaccountable that you should be tested by fire. There is nothing extraordinary in what has happened to you. If you can have some share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, because you will enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed.

Waiting… for the arrival of Baby Jesus by Florence D’Costa

This is a happy time for all Christians.  It is a time when we go out of our way to spend money and time seaching for gifts that we could buy for our loved ones and friends. Well, now we are waiting for the arrival of Baby Jesus who is the Saviour of the W0rld.

During the First Week of Advent, let us spend some quiet time and meditate deeply on the coming of Baby Jesus.  What does the coming of Jesus really mean to us.  I will give you an exercise.  Take a pen and a note book and write down as to what you are expecting during this Advent Season – Spiritual Gifts – Material Gifts – Emotional Gifts.  What type of gifts are we expecting?  What type of gifts do we need?  How do we think Jesus is going to help us?  What Gift are we going to give to Baby Jesus this Christmas.  What gifts are we going to give our family and friends.  Maybe our attitude needs to change for the better?  Let us think and have some quiet time…..
