December 29 - St. Thomas Becket, Bishop and Martyr
The child's father and mother were amazed at what was said about him; and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, "Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted (and you yourself a sword will pierce) so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed" (Luke 2: 33-35).
Jesus has changed the history of the world like no other man in history. We should be proud to have such an influential leader as our King and Lord.
Mary, a sword of sorrow pierced your heart but you were always faithful. Help me to be faithful amidst my difficulties.
