Four Words from the Angel (OGW, 044)

In today’s gospel from Luke, Chapter 1, we hear four life-giving words from the Angel Gabriel.  Words that we can cling to.

Gabriel is very busy in the readings this week.  In today’s reading he tells Zechariah that he and his wife Elizabeth are going to have a baby in their old age.

As you might expect, this is quite surprising to Zechariah, but even more surprising is what happens to Zechariah after he gets the news!

In today’s episode of Opening God’s Word you can find some encouragement from the angel that will help you in your own life. Take his four words to heart.

I encourage you not to be distracted this week by all of the shopping and the never-ending list of things you have to do.  Take today’s episode as a way to re-focus on the big event coming our way!

Please share this with a friend who might be feeling burned out trying to prepare for Christmas.  These readings are a great little retreat for us.

I hope you have a blessed day in God’s Word!
