Tuesday of the 1st Week of Advent

As adults, many of us try to take control of our lives and our destiny. We may also be less tolerant, less willing to be docile, less receptive to the promptings of God. Some of us may have inflated egos and find it difficult to forgive and receive forgiveness.

In today's Gospel, Jesus said: "I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to mere children." When we allow God to care for us and guide us in our lives, we become like mere children, willing and able to learn from Him. It is when we think we know it all and we try to do things our way that we become deaf to God's voice.
