Infant Jesus, living in Mary! And some current news

Holy Infant Jesus, living in Mary! Infuse into me the spirit of prayer and grant that, in virtue thereof, I may adore and imitate, in the still fount of my soul, in the innermost peace of my heart, in the blessed quiet of my spirit, Thy sublime silence in midst of the turmoil of the world and Thy most profound quiet in the midst of wor;dly noise! – Little Devotions to the  Holy Infant Jesus 

“A Child is born to us, a Son is given to us” Isaiah 9:6. The same may be said of His spiritual birth: whenever the Liturgy is offered, a Child is born to us, a Son is given to us. How precious, how invaluable is this gift. It is the most precious of all celestial treasures, the Son of the Eternal Father – Venerable Martin of Cochem.

Sam Dagher published an insightful article in the Wall Street Journal: An ‘Arab Winter’ Chills Christians. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203710704577053221510203422.html

The current pressures against Christians in the Muslim states of the Middle East are growing steadily. Emigration is seen as the only choice more and more.  Pray, pray, pray to the Infant Jesus that radical Islam will be defeated and replaced with a truly tolerant Islam. When Muslim countries lose their Jews or Christians, they easily become radicalized.

Infant Jesus, living in Mary! Help our brethren, we beseech You.
