Saint Teresa of Calcutta once said, “We cannot all do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” The reality is that most of our lives are made up of seemingly small decisions and yet they do truly matter in how we are to be judged.
Today, Fr. Mike shares how our faithfulness to God in the small daily decisions actually amounts to the sum of our spiritual life and the growth in our holiness.
What does God want this Advent? Simple. He wants you. He wants a personal encounter with you. This year, journey through Advent with “Rejoice! Finding Your Place in the Advent Story,” and learn about the places, people, and events that shaped the story of the very first Advent and shape our own lives today.
