Thought for This Week
I will examine my lifestyle and try to live a simple life, paying more attention to people than things. I will attend to the needs of others and offer comfort and compassion. I will share something of what I have with those in need.

Scripture for 3rd Sunday of Advent (Gaudete Sunday) 12th Dec
Jesus answered, “Go back and tell John what you hear and see; the blind see again, and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised to life and the good news is proclaimed to the poor; and happy is the one who does not lose faith in me.” (Mt 11:2-11).
We rejoice at the imminent birth of the Messiah.
