Third Sunday of Advent Meditation

This Advent visualize your soul as a crib for the baby Jesus.  Abbot Martin Veth writes, “The Lord is nigh in Holy Communion.  Here our soul becomes another crib of Bethlehem.  ‘He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath life everlasting,’ said our divine Lord, and ‘I will raise him up on the last day.’  Do we believe this?  Then why be solicitous?  Let us have more faith and hope in our prayers, in Mass and the Sacraments.”

From, Custody of the Heart:  Selected Spiritual Writings of Abbot Martin Veth, O.S.B., Edited by William P. Hyland, PhD., page 15
