Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
The season is in full swing, and we are admonished to give, invited to indulge, and the gifts and gift-giving swell to overflowing.
Advent calls us to set aside this time for a more quiet, but no less celebratory time. Celebrate God today with your thoughts and actions. Let your giving stem from true generosity of heart; meditate on the Giver, Our Father in Heaven, andÂ what He desires to see in us, and in the world.
Peace. Brotherhood. Kindness and Mercy.
