Father God, we thank You and praise You today for the miracle of Your Son's birth. Thank You for bringing great JOY to the whole world! Thank You for giving us the assurance that because You came to us in the form of a human, we who believe in Jesus can know with absolute certainty that we'll spend eternity with You. We thank You, Lord, for the many reasons we have been given a merry Christmas. And we rejoice for each blessing. New life. New love. A home. A job. New opportunities. Second chances. And more. We know, Lord, that You bring the sun and the moon and set the stars in motion. You tell the ocean where to stop and the snow when to start. And we thank You for the mighty gift of Your creation.

Thank You, Father, for spiritual leaders and faith-filled friends who keep encouraging us when we are close to giving up. And although we have many reasons to rejoice today, Lord, we also know December 25th can be not-so-merry for a whole host of reasons. We pray for those who are experiencing loss during Advent: relational, financial, spiritual and physical. We pray for those who are coping with loving a prodigal and our friends and family members whose hearts are far from You. We pray for those dealing with unemployment and addictions and chronic sickness... and unending pain and frustrations of all kinds. Thank You, Lord, that You are The Wonderful Counselor and Prince of Peace, even in the midst of our not-so-merry circumstances. Finally, Lord, we ask You to grant us peace. Peace in our homes, peace in our churches, and peace in our hearts, when the world all around us spins out-of-control. Help us to stay focused on You, this Advent season and always. Thank You for loving the whole world enough to send the greatest gift, Your Son, so that we might truly have a very merry Christmas. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

A Note from Mrs. Longden

During this season, as our awareness for the first coming of Christ is heightened, our longing and expectation for His Second Advent increases as well. We too, like the Israelites, anticipate the reign of the Messiah, who will bring peace and justice and righteousness to the world and who will usher in the Kingdom of God with all of its blessings. We also should be continuously in a state of Advent and preparations for the end of the world and the eternal resurrection.

Do you feel like the Israelites who waited so long to be saved? Do you think they expected their Savior to come in such a humble and vulnerable way? Jesus often enters our lives in
ways we don’t expect.

With the proclamation, “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us” John 1:14 assures us that God has entered into human history through the incarnation of the Son - from the very beginning of His time on earth, Jesus showed us what it means to love and to trust. As you continue preparing your heart to receive the child Jesus at Christmas, look for ways He is working in your life in the unexpected and model after Him.

The Catholic Identity staff committee is working to integrate teaching virtues and mannerisms to students. We would like to share the videos that we are watching in the classroom with you at home. They are quick, one to two minute family-friendly videos. We encourage you to implement these mannerisms in your daily lives.
