Dear Readers: Like the Magi, we must take that ultimate risk/that leap of faith and following the star. We are inundated by "stars" all day long: be they mere mortals or in the form of money, fame, position and so on. As participaters in Christ's Gospel Life, we are called to remember that Christ brought us a great gift and now we must use that gift to glorify His Name. By our actions the World will know that we are alive with God's great gift. Tell the World that there is a "little bit of Christmas" with us at all times. If we set our sight on the main Star and stay true to its course, we can not go astray. .

Psalm 71:1-2, 7-8, 10-13 (Ps 72 Heb)
Douay-Rheims Challoner Text Only

Give to the king thy judgment, O God,
and to the king’s son thy justice:
To judge thy people with justice,
and thy poor with judgment.

In his days shall justice spring up, and abundance of peace,
till the moon be taken away.
And he shall rule from sea to sea,
and from the river unto the ends of the earth.

The kings of Tharsis and the islands shall offer presents:
the kings of the Arabians and of Saba shall bring gifts:
And all kings of the earth shall adore him: all nations shall serve him.

For he shall deliver the poor from the mighty:
and the needy that had no helper.
He shall spare the poor and needy:
and he shall save the souls of the poor
Have a Blessed 2010.
