The Pope's Monthly Intention for December 2021

Catechists : Let us pray for the catechists, summoned to announce the Word of God: may they be its witnesses, with courage and creativity and in the power of the Holy Spirit.

HeartPlease call and check on your elderly neighbors, especially those who are homebound or living alone. Perhaps you can do a bit of shopping for them or get them a newspaper. God will certainly bless you for your goodness!

“Jesus answered, ‘My kingdom does not belong to this world.” (John 18:36)

Life is short. How much time, energy and money do you put into building “your” kingdom here on earth? We all know we can’t take it with us. The real kingdom is in the next life. Yet, how much time, energy and money do you invest in working for that eternal kingdom? Ask God for His guidance. Detach from earthly possessions. Generously share your material goods with others for the greater glory of God.
