Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

In fulfillment of the prophecy, Mary is favored. She is raised up by the divine power of the Holy Spirit and through her own openness to the activity of the Lord in her life. How are you called to be like Mary and Joseph, to trust the word of the Lord and act even in a radical way?

En realización de la profecía, María esescogida. Ella es levantada por el poder divino del Espíritu Santo y por su propia receptividad a la actividad del Señor
en su vida. ¿Cómo se llama a ser como María y José, para confiar en la palabra del Señor y actuar incluso de manera radical?

As the Jubilee Year of Mercy begins, what twists and turns do I need to let God untangle in my life? What rough edges smooth out? What mountainous of pride bring low? What valleys of indifference and neglect fill with mercy for others

      

Al comenzar el Año Jubilar de la Misericordia, ¿qué madejas en mi vida debo dejar que Dios desenrede? ¿Qué asperezas? ¿Cuánto orgullo descomunal debe rebajar? ¿Qué valles de indiferencia y abandono debe llenar para que yo tenga misericordia para con los demás?  

"May nothing keep you from growing in friendship with God." 

~Pope Francis
