GRACE, POWER AND WISDOM
 
Our saint's life offers us the opportunity to give of ourselves.
 
The very reason the Son of God took flesh and became man for our sake was to redeem us from sin and death itself. We are given new life as our heavenly Father’s adopted children. The way to glory in the heavenly kingdom is through the cross of Jesus Christ. If we want to share in this glory, then we too, must take up our cross and act on living a Gospel life as His disciple. God gives us sufficient grace to follow and to bear the cross with strength, courage, and full of hope in the future.
 
Today the church honors St. Stephen. The New Testament doesn’t give many details about Stephen’s life. We know that he was one of seven deacons appointed to care for the poor, the hungry, as well as the widows and orphans of the early church. In today’s First Reading, we also learn about Stephen’s grace and power, his wisdom and great wonders. And we learn that he was killed because of his faith, that he knew he had to carry his cross like Jesus did.
 
It’s the day after Christmas Day and Christmas carols are in the air. Nevertheless, Stephen’s life takes us beyond the gifts opened, neglected, and left under a tree. Stephen shows you and me our heavenly Father’s gift of Jesus given to the poor and broken world that we live in. The example of our saint’s life invites us to be open to the opportunity to give of ourselves.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: By giving of ourselves we make Christmas happen each and everyday.  Unless Today The Word Be Made Flesh Who Will See Him?
