In December we pray with Pope Francis that our personal relationship with Jesus Christ be nourished by the Word of God and a life of prayer.

Do not be afraid of holiness. It will take away none of your energy, vitality or joy. On the contrary, you will become what the Father had in mind when He created you, and you will be faithful to  your deepest self. – Pope Francis
