December 5

Good King Wenceslas went out through the heavy snow with his page to take a box of food to a poor labourer in the bitterly cold winter woods in the tenth century – and we still sing about him today! We can all give the gift of kindness to others in the run up to this Christmas. Who needs your care?

Listen:

Pray

Pray that God will help you to be kind this Christmas season.

Lord, endow us with discernment so that we might recognize the seeds of harshness in our lives. Help us to overcome this harshness with the heart of compassion, seeing then your presence in all human beings. Amen (by Henri Nouwen)

Chat
