I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Gospel Reflections for Thursday December 23: Luke 1:57-66

My Reflections:
Do we follow the will of God for us? No we do not that is why we have problems that we create for ourselves. For example in the promise of the Sacrament of Marriage: To have and to hold for richer or for poorer in sickness and in health till death do us part. But sad to say that this is not followed by couples who wed in the church. We create problems for ourselves that is actually avoidable in turn people and children suffer because of our lack of fidelity to the marriage vows. There’s a whole lot more problems that we create because we’re not faithful to what God wants us to do.

In the gospel for today, the couple (Elizabeth and Zechariah) was faithful to what God want then to do: That is to name their newly born son John (Luke 1:13). Many were suggesting that they name the newly born child after his father Zechariah.  But Elizabeth told them to name him John, they asked Zechariah and he also wrote the name John and immediately after that he was freed from the curse of not being able to speak.

We see what happens to us when we are faithful/unfaithful to what God wants us to do.
