"Do not be afraid!" We hear this enouragement many times in the Scripture. It is a God's message to us. However, we prefer to follow our own plans and ideas. In the Advent season we are to prepare ourselves to listen to the Good News more carefully. Every day our hearts can be fulfiled with peace and joy if only we follow the advice spoken by the Lord through the prophets. Lots of saints did follow God's voice spoken directly to them or through the Bible. They could do that because they really believed and trusted in God. We are also able to be saints. This Christmas is the another occasion to start living as the blessed ones. So let us open our hearts and minds to be obedient and holy.
