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).

Iesu, miserere mei! (Lk 18:38)

Jesus approaches you with the new hope and healing. While you sit and beg for help, Jesus appears and hears the voice of your lament. He never passes by without noticing that you are in need. So you should be grateful for his presence in your life.

Exspectantes redemptionem (Rom 8:23)

Obviously, the sufferings are important part of our life. When we go through the painful experiences, we often forget that God is our loving Father. Since he has allowed his beloved Son to suffer and let us be in trouble. That is true we are humans and feel pain, but at the same time we are children of God who can overcome all the obstacles. Thanks to the Holy Spirit, we are stronger than any evil. For that reason we believe that our earthly life is only a period which ends and afterwards the heavenly life starts. 
As human beings we have an immortal soul and as a result nothing can destroy our dignity. Yes, we do suffer because of the pains and problems, but  we rejoice in the firstfruits of the Spirit as well. While we experience difficulties, we keep in mind that the redemption of our bodies is at hand. By the divine grace, we survive and are saved. Moreover, as sisters and brothers in Jesus Christ we wait patiently with endurance for the everlasting joy in the kingdom of God.
