Take some time to stop and reflect this Advent, using these four SlideShares based on reflections by Fr. Robert Maloney, C.M. on Mary, Joseph, John the Baptist, and Isaiah. They are brief; the longest one is just 16 slides. They can be viewed on your phone or iPad, or you can download the PowerPoint files to share with a group– for example at an SVDP conference meeting.
Are we humble enough to believe that He who is mighty can do great things?
Joseph knew the pain and embarrassment of poverty when there was no room in the inn and he had to place his infant child in a manger.
John the Baptist makes it very clear that we will live genuinely for Christ only if we are willing to die for Him.
By waiting and by calm, you shall be saved; in quiet and trust your strength lies. (Is. 30:15)
