REFLECTION – “Jesus Christ, the God-Man, was born in a manger and is spiritually reborn on the altar.    He suffered on Calvary and continues to offer Himself on the altar. In His earthly life, He spread His teaching and worked miracles among the crowds.   In the Eucharist, He spans the centuries and communicates Himself to all.”…St John Chrysostom (347-407) Father & Doctor of the Churchjesus christ the god man - st john chrysostom - 23 dec 2017

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, in contemplating the birth of Your Son in time and in the Eucharist, may I ever attain a new birth.   May I through love of You, give my all to my neighbour in true charity.   Help me to learn from St John of Kanty to live in humility, true poverty of spirit and charity and of whom we ask for intercession.    St John of Kanty, pray for us! Amenst john of kanty pray for us - 23 dec 2017
