Advent Challenge, Day 19
Actions (sometimes) Speak Louder than Words
We are a prayerful people. I know, that Daily Mass is like salve to my soul. I can pour out my heart to my God, be still and listen to Him. When I hear something tragic or difficult my frequent response is, "I'll pray for you!"
There are times, however, that prayer is not enough. Sometimes our prayers must include actions. For example, my adult daughter had a doctor's appointment this morning. Nothing serious, but she was a little nervous and she asked if I was able to go with her. She didn't really need me there, but she wanted me there. The appointment was at the time I would normally go to Mass, but I chose to show my daughter Christ's love by going with her.
A friend has been suffering with her husband's illness. I pray for her daily, but the occasional meal prepared for her is a more tangible way to pray through action.
Today's challenge is to, through your actions, BE the Gospel someone will read. God bless.
