Eyes and Ears of Faith

Tuesday of the First Week of Advent

In that same hour, he rejoiced in the Holy Ghost, and said: I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them to little ones. Yea, Father, for so it hath seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered to me by my Father; and no one knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and to whom the Son will reveal him. And turning to his disciples, he said: Blessed are the eyes that see the things which you see. For I say to you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see the things that you see, and have not seen them; and to hear the things that you hear, and have not heard them.
Luke 10:21-24 (Douay-Rheims Bible)

Prayer Reflection

Dear Father your Son rejoices in the Holy Spirit and rightly so. For you are all connected as one. Oh if only they could see how very much the Holy Spirit is the biggest part of the three. Jesus knew this as no one else has and he reveals it to those who love him. Glory to you dear Father, Son and Holy Spirit for united as one you always will be. To think that the disciples have seen and heard what we desire above all else to know. Yet all it takes is loving God first in our lives. Love God first and foremost in our lives and place our thoughts on Him who made all creation. Begin our journey with this in mind upon waking and upon going to sleep. Don't let up when other thoughts come, but keep God as your focus throughout the day. We all can love our neighbor easily then. May our thoughts be yours this day and everyday dear Father. And may many come to know you in a better light. Amen
