A joyful journey: Advent day by day

Monday: "Be forgiving and giving"

(Reference: Isaiah 35:1-10; Luke 5:17-26)

God’s endless generosity to Israel and to us is depicted as the riotous blossoming of the desert, the strengthening of the weak and the end of sorrow.
 
Jesus shows this same generosity to the paralytic, forgiving his sins and gifting him good health.
 
In honor of St. Nicholas today, secretly leave a gift in a child’s shoe or otherwise enjoy being generous.
