Encountering the joy of unexpected gifts

“Reading and pondering the Gospel in the family is like a good bread that nourishes the heart of everyone… Through prayer, even in the busiest times, we find the peace that comes from appreciating the important things, and we encounter the joy of God’s unexpected gifts.” (Pope Francis)

Reflection Questions:

  1. What gift(s) am I hoping to receive from God this Christmas?
  2. What gift am I giving to my beloved that is God’s gift delivered through me?

Strengthen your relationship:
Discuss ideas about how to slow down during the busy holiday season in order to look for and discover the daily-but-unexpected gifts that God is blessing you with. Pray to the Holy Spirit asking for your eyes to be opened to the gifts that God brings you every day.
