Mercy Gospel Reflection: Dec 13




Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

13 December | 3rd Sunday of Advent

Saint John the Baptist in this week’s Gospel tells us that in preparing for Christ “if anyone has two tunics he must share with the man who has none, and the one with something to eat must do the same.” In order to make room for Christ in our hearts we must make room for the needs of others and be generous.

  • What are your spouse’s needs for the coming week?
  • How might you reach out to them in love?
A Reflection by Karen and Derek Boylen
