Pondering for Wednesday, January 1, 2020

This is the Eighth Day of Christmas

Eucharistic Readings for Holy Name Day: January 1

Numbers 6:22-27   Psalm 8  Galatians 4:4-7or Philippians 2:5-11   Luke 2:15-21

“And he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.” (Luke 2:21)

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all of us were not only wanted, but so desired that our names were scrutinized over well before we were even conceived?  So then, we too are named at our Baptisms, and consecrated oil seals us by the power of Holy Spirit and marks us as Christ’s own forever.  Thank you Lord Jesus.

May your Christened name be blessed forever.  Merry Christmas; Day 8

We thank you Lord Jesus for being born like us, for us, and saving us.  Merry Christmas: Day 7

If being forgiven is the greatest gift we can ever receive from someone, then it is also the greatest gift we can ever give to someone. Merry Christmas: Day 6

It is an extraordinary gift we have, to believe. All Christians need to live into what we believe.  Merry Christmas: Day 5

We are never to hurt or harm children, only help them, teach them, save and love them. This is what Christmas is all about. Merry Christmas: Day 4

The testimony of John the apostle about our Lord Jesus is true; Believe.  Merry Christmas: Day 3

Let us not take our hate or ill will for another with us to our mortal death.  Merry Christmas: Day 2

Our being saved has as much to do with the birth of Jesus as it does his Resurrection from the dead.  Merry Christmas: Day 1

Let us hear what the Spirit is saying to and through the saints of God and then ponder anew what the Almighty can do.  John
