Follow:  The magi followed the star, seeking the Messiah, the King. This week, reflect on what you follow. Do you follow sports, news, trends. How important is following these? How much of yourself do you invest in these? Spend a little more time each day seeking Jesus, following the Light.

Find Joy: In our world, it's sometimes hard to have joy. We all want to be joyful, so why don't we go looking for it. Sometimes some of our most joyful experiences are also some of the most difficult ones. This week, go looking for joy, and you might just find it.

Prepare: Spend some time this week looking at how much time and effort you put into things in your life. Then, look at how much time you spend preparing to meet God; how do they compare? If you find that you aren't investing your time wisely, make small changes. Make them one at a time, let them become a habit, and keep on growing!

Love: Make a conscious effort this week to love. We may find that at times we do not love, or even like ourselves; neighbors can be difficult, and God can be confusing. Do something this week to show that you love yourself, your neighbor, and God.

Protect us andhelp us to be faithful to the mission you've given us:   We especially pray that each parishioner and person around our parishmay encounter the real and life-changing presence of Jesus.  Send your Holy Spirit like a mighty rushing windto bring about a spirit of genuine and continuing conversion.  In Jesus name, Amen+

Reflect:  Reflect on your attitudes of HUMILITY...Why do I do what I do? Is it all about me?...HELPFULNESS...How do I help people come closer to Jesus? Do I leave them to figure it out on their own?...GENEROSITY...How do I share what I have with the Church, those in need, and those who have less? Do I keep everything for myself?...MERCY...How ready and able am I to forgive? Do I condemn, judge and hold grudges?

Forgive: Think about your life, your past. Think about the relationships you've had with your parents, friends, classmates, the people you work with, and strangers. Do you still harbor a grudge? Do you have a hard time letting go of an injury? This week, pray for the courage to forgive them...and if you already have, forgive them again.
