St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

December 18

"What will this child turn out to be?" (Luke 1: 66)

Just before the account of Jesus' birth the Gospels tell us of the birth of John the Baptist. He will be faithful to God and will look forward to the ministry of Jesus. Meanwhile he waits patiently and prepares to fulfil his mission. The Spirit is always active in our lives and invites us to look forward to the good things God has planned.

Lord, like John help us to look forward with expectation, trusting in your faithful promises, that we may be signs of your presence in the world. Amen.
