Mary holds a special place in Catholic tradition because she is the mother of Jesus, who is God. Yet, it is important to realize that each of us is also special. Each of us also brings Emmanuel into the world with actions of love, care, and respect toward friends, family, strangers, outcasts, and sinners.
Put your Faith in Action by celebrating the Advent Prayer below. Sing or play a recording of the song O Come, O Come Emmanuel. Rewrite the song to reflect today’s reality. Have the words reflect how Emmanuel is in our world today. Include ways you want to manifest God in your own life. Make a Christmas card for someone you love. Tell them how they bring God into your life.
