Geeky Catholic Advent: The Fourth Sunday of Advent 2018

Gospel Reading: Luke 1:39-45

Highlight: "At the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy."

Reflection: When Mary came to visit Elizabeth, both Elizabeth and her unborn child John were aware of the presence of Jesus inside Mary. And that impacted how Elizabeth addressed Mary. Now, as far as I know, none of us are physically pregnant with God Incarnate, but we do carry Christ's presence inside of us in a spiritual way. Does that impact the way we interact with each other?

Geeky Quote: "Therefore when [the Ainur] beheld [the Children of Ilúvatar], the more did they love them, being things other than themselves, strange and free, wherein they saw the mind of Ilúvatar reflected anew, and learned yet a little more of his wisdom, which otherwise had been hidden even from the Ainur." - The Ainur (analogous to angels), seeing Ilúvatar (God) in His creatures, The Silmarillion

Prayer: Jesus, help me to see you in everyone I encounter, and to treat them according to their inherent dignity. Amen.
