  • Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Surrender to God

    “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38). This is one of the most beautiful lines in Scripture. It conveys to us the total surrender and power of obedience to God’s will in our lives. Because of Mary’s fiat, the Savior entered the world to save us from our sins and to bring us back to God. As we celebrate Christmas tomorrow, let us do so in the spirit of joy, welcoming the hum- ble Christ-child into our hearts once more and asking Him to conform our hearts to His most sacred heart. In this joyful time, let us show love, kindness, and mercy to our loved ones who have fallen away and never lose hope in their return home. The angel Gabriel tells us, “For nothing will be impossible for God” (Luke 1:37).

    Christmas Message from Archbishop Robert J. Carlson

    We rejoice in our Savior’s birth - remembering the great gift of faith He has given us through the mystery of His incarnation and the saving power of His death and resurrection. Each year, the people of our archdiocese have been asked to make a special gift on Christmas Day to support our seminari- ans at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary. The men of our seminary, who have responded to Christ's call to follow Him, are truly a gift to the Church and to the Archdiocese of St. Louis. It is these men who will bring the faith given to us by Christ 2000 years ago to future generations here in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. I ask you, once again, to pray for vocations and for all our priests and seminarians. I also ask you to be generous in your donation to the Christmas Day collection, which helps pay the day-to-day expenses and maintenance of our seminary. Please be assured of my prayers for you during the season of Christmas. May the Lord of life come into your hearts and homes in a special way during this holy time of year.

    Thank you to all who participated in the Giving Tree project and brought donations for Birthright to distribute to mothers in need and their chil- dren. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

  • JOSEPHVILLE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS The next Josephville Knights of Columbus meeting will be this Thu., Dec. 28 at 7pm in the school cafeteria. Any men interested in joining please call Larry Bean at 636-541-7991.

    Stewardship Awareness “Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!” Luke 1:28 Faith is a gift from God. Take time in silence and thank Him for all the gifts He has given you. Try to set aside any anger or resentment you have and really open your heart to receive the gift of God’s mercy and forgiveness. We can’t give what we don’t have. We need to receive God’s mercy and forgiveness first before we can give it to others.
