Reflect: “From the fear of being asked to give more than I have, Deliver me Jesus.”In our hearts this prayer evokes a longing for freedom and yet also expresses the doubt that trusting in Jesus might leave us wanting. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI says, “If we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing,
absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful and great. No! Only in this friendship are the doors of life opened wide.” How do we value this ‘friendship with God’? This Advent may we dare to enter into this friendship and therein discover the freedom of loving and being loved.
