Last minute spirituality

Plans are made. The menu is set. The gifts are under the tree. 

Christmas is almost here.

But what about today? It is still Advent, after all. How are you spiritually preparing, today, for the birth of Our Lord?

Why start spiritually preparing now? I dropped the ball the other 3 1/2 weeks.

It's OK. It's the Year of Mercy. God doesn't give up on you. You can't give up on him.

How do you suggest I spiritually prepare for Christmas in 24 hours?

Here's a 3 step plan. Pick one or do both. (Perhaps come up with something on your own. Just do something.)

1. Make one small sacrifice, today. Yes, Advent is a penetential season. If you didn't get around to 'giving something up' or making a good confession, there's still time. One day. Go.

2. Pray a family Rosary. I suggest the Joyful Mysteries.

3. Call a family member or friend who is alone. It might be the only gift they receive this Christmas.

From my family to yours, have a Merry Christmas!
