St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

December 23

"Be it unto me according to thy word." (Luke 1: 38)

We live in a status-conscious society where the rich and powerful are admired. Yet Christmas reminds us that in God's Kingdom it is the lowly who have the highest honour. When God came into the world it was a simple village girl Mary, humble shepherds, and an elderly couple Simeon and Anna, who were the first people to acknowledge this special person. We too are called to be Christ-bearers to our world.

Lord, may we like Mary be open to your presence, and share that joy with others as we bear Christ within us. Amen.
