In this third week of Advent, the week of Joy, we anticipate the birth and return of our Savior and King. May we be encouraged by the joy that comes from being selfless:
Let this be thy whole endeavor, this thy prayer, this thy
desire—that thou mayest be stripped of all selfishness,
and with entire simplicity follow Jesus only.
Thomas a Kempis, Author of The Imitation of Christ (1380-1471)
