A Christmas Eve “Divine Yes”

“Every time we give in to selfishness and say ‘No’ to God, we spoil His loving plan for us.” Pope Francis

Tonight Advent ends and Christmas begins. Think of Mary, her “yes” to God, her “yes” to what seemed impossible, her “yes” to what God asked of her.

“Let it be to me as you have said…”

“Jesus is the Divine ‘yes!’ to our human ‘we’ll see’ or ‘kind-ofs.’ It is the relationship to which Jesus has said and does say ‘yes’ that allows us to live with our inconsistencies. Actions speak loudly and words are whispers of hope. We will eventually do what we know ourselves to be. Jesus comes to give us ourselves so that we can give Him to others.”  Larry Gillick, S.J.

May this Christmas and New Year be filled with “yes-es” to God…

grace, peace & Divine ‘yes-es’
