Second Sunday in Advent: Faith
Love is the outpouring of our faith and just as Jesus gave himself for us, we can give ourselves to others.
Through Mary's faith, she served Elizabeth. I imagine her being in the middle of first trimester pregnancy symptoms – morning sickness, fatigue – and yet she still went and cared for her cousin for three months.
Our faith informs our actions, and we are called to selfless love.
Mary showed us love of neighbour. Does the outpouring of our faith and the guidance of the Holy Spirit help us notice opportunities to love others?
