Fourth week of Advent

As we start the final week of Advent, and are looking forward to the joy of celebrating Christmas with friends and family, I'd like to share this little reflection with you.

Caring for One Another
Let each one confidently make known his need to another that the other might discover what is needed and minister to him. Let each one love and care for his brother as a mother loves and cares for her son in those matters in which God has given him the grace.
St Francis of Assisi

Lord, during this hectic season, I often become so absorbed in my own little world that I am not attentive to the needs of others. Help me to express my own needs humbly and to meet the needs of other graciously. By doing so, may I be drawn into a closer relationship with others and with you.
