Conversion of Sinners = Joy

prayer at foot of Jesus

If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray?

And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it
than over the ninety-nine that did not stray.
In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father
that one of these little ones be lost.” (Mt. 18)

Action: 

Offer up all your little struggles and make little sacrifices for the conversion of sinners this Advent.  It is a penitential season.  Consider people in your own family, people at work, those who will attend Mass on Christmas but don’t go throughout the year and yes, for yourself to have a humble and contrite heart.

Prayer:

Jesus, I thank you for humbling yourself and taking on human flesh in order to bring salvation.  I pray for the conversion of sinners and for them to experience your joy in a powerful way. Amen!
