Fourth Sunday of Advent

Hail, full of grace, the Lord is

with you!

(

Luke 1:28)

After Jesus, we look to Mary

as an ideal steward.

Her

entire life was lived in

obedience to God

s

call.

Mary teaches us to live

with joy for all we have been

given.

Just as the moon

reflects the light of the sun,

Mary reflects the light of

Christ.

Like Mary, we are

called to reflect Christ

s light

to the world through our

gratitude and generosity.
