Reflection for Jan. 1, 2012

for the Feast of Mary, Mother of God

by Sister Agnes Fischer

"Mary pondered all these things in her heart." (Luke 2:19)

... God had chosen her for His Mother.
... The Son of God had become human for love of us.
... The first to whom Jesus would manifest himself were the simple people of little value in the eyes of the world.

Mary, help us to ponder all this so that we begin this New Year with a new spirit:
... Remember that Jesus came to give us an example of how to live.
... Consider the poverty of Mary and her Son and disregard the desire to possess more than we need.
... We are brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ and of each other because of what occurred that first Christmas.
... Share the love and peace of this season all during the year with those whom the world values little.

Our Lady of Good Memories, help us to return to our work places, as the shepherds did to theirs, praising God with our lips and also by our daily lives.

This is my sister reflecting and i hope that i can do as she recommends. Happy New Year to all you dear Sisters and thank you for the many times these past years that I have come to you and asked for prayers and you have answered.
