Meditation is an ideal way to pray. Using God's word (Lectio Divina) allows me to hear, listen and reflect on what the Lord wants to say to me - to one of his disciples - just like He did two thousand years ago.
The best time to reflect is at the beginning of the day and for at least 15 to 30 minutes.
Prior to going to sleep, read the Mass readings for the next day and then, in the morning, reflect on the Meditation offered on this website.
I hope these daily meditations allow you to know, love and imitate the Lord in a more meaningful way.
God bless you!

Lk 2:1-14 Christmas Poem

Lk 2:1-14 Christmas Poem

(Click here for readings)

Just a little reminder from a sweet little angel:

It was on a cold night like this, a night unlike others,

the first of all miracles was truly born.

It cannot be forgotten that Emperors and Empires ruled throughout the earth.

Death and destruction filled so many with hurt.

Screams from the innocent, of sadness and loss,

were far too common throughout our earth.

Like so many nights before,

it appeared as if hope had gone to fear.

But it was during this night that hope reappeared

and awakened poor Shepherds who were out in the fields.

In the darkness of the sky, a bright star broke the night.

A child had been born, the true lamb had appeared.

The First and the Greatest,

The Last and the Lowliest was born on this day

and gave us true sight.

Emperors awakened with fear.

Empires all trembled in fear.

How right they were, for they would all disappear.

But the Wise of the world looked up and agreed,

this star in the Heavens would point them to their King.

In His Kingdom God chooses the humble to make them strong.

God chooses the poor to inherit it all.

God chooses a village as the City for all.

So we should always remember,

that the greatest of all,

are the tiniest of persons,

born in the remotest of places, and

found among the poorest of races.

Tonight, the Savior of the world is born!

So do not fear a single thing,

you are very much loved by our Savior and King.

  1. Your thoughts today tugged at my heart a little bit more than usual. It's the words "a little reminder from a sweet little angel". Why? well because when I was a kid, I saw a real angel and I spoke with her. She was real. This is the first time I actually publicly say this. I guess I am always afraid of the skepticism and the criticism and the judgements. Only my family knows...until now.

    This morning, before I read you daily meditation, I decided to post on my own blog about a bright star. A star that I grew up with. A star that I miss.

    Merry Christmas Padresito.
