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!

On this second day of the year of 2012, I would like to wish you a happy and prosperous new year!  May it be filled with love, laughter and accomplished goals!  I feel good about this year.  Great things are going to happen for all of us if we stay focused, work hard and remember to play hard to!  I hope that 2011 has been reflected upon, we’ve learned our lessons and are ready to take on 2012 by storm.  After all, we were destined to do so!

Until then
