Mercy Gospel Reflection: Dec 20



Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

20 December | 4th Sunday of Advent

In this week’s Gospel, Elizabeth is filled with joy and the Holy Spirit as she acknowledges the presence of Jesus in Mary’s womb.

As Christians, we are called to recognise the face of Christ in others. When do you notice Christ alive in your spouse?

Take some time this week to reflect on your spouse’s positive qualities.

See if you can experience some of Elizabeth’s joy as you acknowledge these attributes and the way they enrich your home and family life. Make a point of acknowledging and appreciating these qualities.
