This week we remember what the peace of Christ means. We are reminded by the songs and declarations of Simeon and Anna.
This week we learn about how to give and receive love. We learn how to need people and how to be needed by people and how this need calls us to discipleship. Our mutuality is part of our sanctification.
We look at the Magnificat – Mary’s prayer in Luke 1 as she meets with Elizabeth in a small Judean town.
We take a brief detour into the Luke reading this week and find Jesus encouraging us to bring our experiences of injustice, our frustration, our pain to God in prayer. We are invited and instructed to assault God with our prayers. Will we do so? Or will we lose faith?
