Our Father God in heaven knows how much unlimited love means. He knows we can find this kind of love in our deepest desires. So He sent us you, dearest Lord Jesus.  Your “human” heart is large enough to hold all our loneliness and our mental and physical pain. Your heart is flesh and not made of stone. Your heart is deep, as deep as “divine love.” You heart does not choose rich or poor, friend or enemy, female or male, slave or free, sinner or saint. Your love accepts any one of us, and you never hold back. It is a total unrestricted, unconditional love.

Matthew 11:28-30


”Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yolk upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yolk is easy, and my burden is light.”


My Holy Lord. I will symbolically place a wreath on the door to my heart this season, so that the your Holy Spirit might find it, enter my hearts door and live there in me. I will seek his presence and holiness there. Lord may the Holy Spirit inside of me, dwell with me, calm me, and create a gentleness within in me this Advent season.


….and now I illuminate the candles of peace, hope and joy…
