Propter arcam Dei (2 Sm 6:12)

Every encounter with the Lord gives joy into your heart. When you come closer to him, you feel his presence more and more. When you offer your time for him, you achieve peace and happiness. In his holy presence, you are at home.
So rejoice and praise the Lord as often as you can. Join the community of believers and sing the beautiful song of worship. Invite the Lord into your soul and prepare place for him. 
Yes, he wants to stay with you all the time. Therefore, pitch the tent for the Lord and journey through life with him. Offer to the Lord everything you have and everything you are. 
Do not be ashamed to love him more than others and show him your attachment. Thus, you will experience his blessing and will be able to share it with your sisters and brothers. 
It is your vocation as the beloved disciple of your Master. The Lord chooses you to help your beloved ones. You are the one who can distribute the divine graces to the world. His Holy Spirit operates through your deeds and acts. Overall, you are the herald of the Good News and the Kingdom of God.

Filius hominis (Mk 2:10)

There are days when you come closer to Jesus and feel his presence in your soul. You may have plenty of work and many tasks to do, but you welcome the Son of God and spend time with him. He is in the centre of your life and his words are noticed by you.
You tell Jesus about everything and share all your troubles and problems. Although you are not sure how to start and feel embarrassed, you have the courage to open yourself because you trust him wholeheartedly. 
While you are lost, fallen or depressed,  you look for Jesus and find consolation in his arms. When you make mistakes and commit sins, you let him embrace you with his love, mercy and compassion. 
Jesus Christ always speaks to you with a loud voice: 'Child, do not be afraid! Your sins are forgiven. You are my beloved one'. 
Other people may despise you but the Lord alone has the power to strengthen you. He gives you new hope and grants gift of the Holy Spirit. Consequently, you are able to rise, change your life and follow him.

In Spiritu Sancto (Jn 1:33)

Look at Jesus coming towards you in the New Year. Pay attention and focus on him in order to know what to do in every situation. See in Jesus the power of God which is the Holy Spirit. 
Jesus Christ takes away your sins and has mercy on you. He is the only One who cares unselfishly and offers his life for you. 
Jesus is stronger than everyone who fights against you. Jesus is greater than everything which overwhelms you. 
This New Year, try to know Jesus more and feel his Love that flows from his divine Heart. Come closer to him in the holy sacraments and listen carefully to his voice through the Bible. 
Ask for the Spirit of Jesus so you could behave like him and make the same decisions as he did. Fulfill the will of the Father who has created you and appointed for the tasks which you are to do. Open your soul and receive his blessing which you can share with your sisters and brothers. Make the difference in your life and change your attitude. In the Spirit of Jesus testify that all the children of God are called to walk in holiness.

Verbo Domini (Sir 48:3)

In those special days we are eager for the prophetic words. For the words which can enlighten and kindle our hearts. For the words of the Lord who speaks to our soul directly. Without his holy words we neither choose rightly nor rejoice in our life. 
We do not need the words of people which often make us confused and hurt. They do not have the power to change the actual state of our mind. For that reason, we desire the Word from the heavenly Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Only this holy Word is able to bring fire from heaven to the earth. Only this divine Word makes wonders and miracles in our life. Only this Word of God should be praised and honored by people all the time. 
As Christians, we listen to the Word carefully and follow the divine teaching. Thus, we know that all of us are united in Christ and called to achieve happiness in the Kingdom of God. By the Word we are taught how to love each other with tenderness and patience. In this Word we become holier and closer to God.

A Patre meo (Lk 10:22)

The declaration of Jesus invites us to see the goodness of our heavenly Father that we experience daily in our lives. God is good and abundant in his grace. As children of God, we receive this abundance of grace in our own realities. It is the Holy Spirit who helps us to notice these superfluous gifts poured on us. When we allow ourselves to be touched and guided by the Holy Spirit, we are able to see the wonders which God does in our lives. Then the unworthy becomes worthy, the weak becomes strong, the moron becomes wise, the blind gets vision, the wayward gets a direction etc. For nothing is impossible to God, when one commits his own life for the Spirit to flow through.
The season of Advent bids us to open our eyes and look at the creation with the eyes of a child. Let the irresistible sentiments of gratitude to our Creator rise up and find joyful expression in our being and doing (by s. Jessy Paul SSpS).

In monte isto (Is 25:7)

Advent is a special time when the Lord provides his gifts and the Holy Spirit for his beloved ones. Knowing the longings of your heart he wants you to feel happy, peaceful and hopeful during this season of divine grace. 
Accordingly, you need to prepare yourself for his blessings. Let him touch and cleanse you from your doubts, worries and all kinds of weaknesses. Keep in mind that you are his chosen one whom he loves wholeheartedly. Even if you make mistakes, commit sins and escape from his sight, he is by your side waiting to wipe away the tears from your face. Through his holy Word, he reminds you that God the Father cares and takes pity on you.
Therefore, patiently wait for the Lord who makes you rejoice and be glad. He puts his holy hand on your head and blesses you in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Accept his blessing and expect miracles in your life. Close your eyes and feel his gently touch which is the Holy Spirit abiding in you.

Dominum Iesum! (Rom 10:9)

Apostle is the one who preaches that Jesus is Lord. He gives such a testimony because strongly believes and trusts in his heart. In addition, he knows that all the peoples can be saved by the divine grace. 
The disciple of Christ teaches his sisters and brothers that they should believe with their heart and be justified. They also need to confess their faith and acknowledge their weaknesses. 
The follower of Jesus reads the Scripture carefully and understands the will of God. Thus, he can easily recognize what is good and what is evil. Moreover, he listens to his conscience during the silent prayer and meets with the Lord is the Spirit. 
Thanks to the Holy Spirit he is enriched with many gifts and charisms. Furthermore, he receives the divine power to call on the name of the Lord in the world. Accordingly, he is a missionary who brings the good news to all the peoples. He never gives up but continues to share the gospel. In this way, his voice goes forth to all the earth and to the ends of the world.
