Thought of the Day December 23, 2019 Come, Emmanuel.

By 11:15 AM

O Antiphon December 23

O Emmanuel, king and lawgiver, desire of the nations, Savior of all people, come and set us free, Lord our God.

In the scriptures for the Fourth Sunday of Advent, we were reminded that God is with us, which is the meaning of Emmanuel. In the midst of all our trials and difficulties, darkness and pain, God has promised to be with us. In being with us, he does not necessarily take away the struggles, but walks with us through those moments. We are never alone. God not only said he will be with us, he became flesh so that he could literally be with us. Such is his love. And he said that he would be with us till the end of time. Come, Lord Jesus, set us free from all fears of loneliness and abandonment. Come and take  your rest in our hearts.
