We are a week away from Christmas. I have posted an article on the "O Antiphons" on the Consecration blog under Formation. Please check this out. It makes the last week of Advent very special and united to Our Lady.
I will try to write special messages given to us by Archbishop Fulton J Sheen for these last days in preparation of Christmas. Here is the first one:
"Sanctity is not giving up the world. It is exchanging the world. It is a continuation of that sublime transaction of the Incarnation in which Christ said to man:
"you give me your humanity, I will give you My Divinity.
You give me your time, I will give you My Eternity.
You give me your bonds, I will give you My Omnipotence.
You give me your slavery, I will give you My Freedom.
You give me your death, I will give you My Life.
You give me your nothingness, I will give you My All."
And the consoling thought throughout this whole transforming process is that it does not require must time to make us saints; it requires ONLY MUCH LOVE!"
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
