By Sarah Chichester (Dec 23, 2010)
December 23, [1936]. I am spending this time with the Mother of God and preparing myself for the solemn moment of the coming of the Lord Jesus. The Mother of God is instructing me in the interior life of the soul with Jesus, especially in Holy Communion. It is only in eternity that we shall know the great mystery effected in us by Holy Communion. O most precious moments of my life!
Diary of St. Faustina, 840

Dear Mary, as you help me to prepare my heart to welcome Jesus on Christmas day, help me prepare to receive Him in the Eucharist. How often I forget that He is there! How often I think about bills, work, or my many worries!

Today, Mary, I beg that through your intercession I may stay in a spirit of recollection, always mindful that Christ is truly present in the Eucharist. And when I receive Him in the Eucharist, may I tell Him how much I love Him, and accept all the gifts that He longs to lavish on me.

Lest we forget - The Mother is also part of the best gift that The Lord gives us this Season !

When our hearts want to wander onto the less applealing sites of the manger - at the hurtful word , at the control mentalities that try to tie up our God given freedoms , we can instead gaze at the face of that Mother ..our Mother ..Mother of the one who may be like a bully or a coward too ..and pondering such a one in her hands - does not that help to wash away all the wasteful , built up resentments !

Sometimes , one has to wonder if the Incarnation is also about God's good plan , to gve us such a good Mother !
Glory be !
