Extraordinary Results

Extraordinary Results

A former leader of the IBM Executive School once commented, ‘A worthwhile mission properly articulated galvanizes ordinary people with extraordinary even explosive results’.

So why do I open this week’s Friday FAST with an insight from someone totally unconnected with Catholicism?

Well, because I believe that as we approach this Third Sunday of Advent – traditionally known as Gaudete Sunday – joyfully anticipating the Christmas festival – there is no better way to remind ourselves of how well God the Father chose to articulate his mission to redeem humanity than by allowing His Son to become a vulnerable, precious unborn and newborn baby. You can't get more explosive than that!

One 3rd Sunday of Advent tradition which has been popular in Italy for many years and now is spreading across the world is called ‘Bambinelli Sunday’. Families are invited to bring their own small figure of the Infant baby Jesus from their family crib to be blessed during the Sunday Mass.

In this way, the children, parents and grandparents are able to focus on what the Advent preparations should be about – which is on the very day which marks our expectation and rejoicing of the Birth of Our Lord.

So why not bring the figure of the Infant Christ from your own crib if you have one and ask the priest after Mass to bless the figure to add a new dimension to the Spirit of Christ entering our homes and hearts in the final days of Advent. This is something that grandparents might encourage their grandchildren to do too! Who knows, like the man from IBM said, our little gesture could even have ‘explosive’ spiritual results.

In our mission statement at CatholicMarriagePrep.com we say: “Agape Catholic Marriage Preparation invites couples to a deeper relationship with each other and with Christ, one couple at a time.  Online, on-demand instruction rooted in Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, combined with personalized mentoring from a trained married couple, builds a foundation for a strong, healthy, Christ-centered marriage between a man and a woman.”  Who does that best serve?   From the very inception of CatholicMarriagePrep.com serving military couples has always been on our hearts, even offering a military discount.

Wow!!!  Yes, that is the correct word to begin this blog post!  I think I am still in shock!  On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus our country just experienced the overturning of an almost 50-year-old law regarding abortion.  Roe vs. Wade was overturned!

I always giggle a little when a couple misunderstands the question on immorality in the online marriage prep course. It’s an understandable misinterpretation: the difference between immorality and immortality is a “t”. While we are asking about things are not-moral in marriage, some couples give us an explanation of how they think they are soul mates for eternity and their love is immortal.
