Putting Life Into Perspective with Father Ian Jeremiah Series: Winter Break

Happy Sunday! Let today be a day of rest and reflection on the week that just passed. Envision all the great things that happened to you, hold on to the feeling of having those moments in your life and carry it into this new week! If you’re just tuning in, the last couple of weeks have been covering the words of wisdom from a Priest I had the pleasure of listening to during an RCIA retreat back in November. There are a few more pieces left to the series but as I have been catching up on my DVR this weekend I thought it would be the perfect time to have an official “winter break” and have the Putting Life Into Perspective with Father Ian Jeremiah Series return after the holidays. Today will be an opportunity to catch up if you have missed any, a mini marathon if you will.

Before I do, I just want to wish the Catholic community a Happy New Year. It is now officially the second week of Advent. We’ll learn all about that next week!

I’ll leave you with today’s second reading.

Phil 1:4-6, 8-11 [Cooperating with Joy]

Paul rejoices in the progress of faith among his Phillippians. He is sure that God who began this good work will help it grow. Paul prays that their love may even more abound that they may be rich in harvest.
A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Phillippians

Brothers and sisters:

I pray always with joy in my every prayer for all of you, because of your partnership for the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Christ Jesus.  God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.  And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more in knowledge and every kind of perception, to discern what is of value, so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.

-The word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Let it marinate!

So many things came to my mind while I was reading this. I really like the way you say a thing would “warm my heart.” I like the idea of being able to discern what is of value. I hve several things going on in my life now where i really need that gift! Thanks for this article because it was full of hope and encouragement.

That is great news! I really try to live each that way, doing things and seeing things in life that warm my heart. Some days are a little bit more difficult than others but I do believe those days are around for a reason. I am thankful to have you in my life and you really do warm my heart. You’re awesome!

that is one of the things I love about being a Christian, is remembering that God = love! You’re so right Mama Brandi, love is important! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
