This is the third of the 4 wesks
before Advent, representing the
third part of the 4000 years man
kind awaited and prepared for the
Redeemer. We, too must prepare
spiritually for Him; and not just
count the shopping days till Christ
mas. Were we to ask St. Joseph,
guardian of the Infant how we
might best prepare, he might well
reply, "By being kind" For the
first Christmas eve is still fresh In
his mind. He was so anxious to
find shelter and comfort for Mary
as hour drew near; but all he
found ?w bright lights, - merry
laughter, the smell of food, escap
ing warmth, and always? that
look, from head to toe: "They are
poor. She is with child. Of course
we have no room? for them"!
Joseph did not need lips to tell
him "No."; but still the word cut

brighten someone's day, ?hinge a

never know whose; but wer? it the

RESOLUTION:: To adopt the
mood of our neighbor-rejoice iho
we be inwardly sad; mourn tho wc
be happy; smile when it is hard,
talk when we'd be silent; be mel
ancholic with the melancholic to
gain his confidence and better ap
ply a cure.

and on my lips, that I worthily
spread thy joy. "Lo is not a word

timea more than most other coun

now, the $2,000 are for the people
of the United States, while the )50.
for instance, are for the people
who are living in India- To be
sure, inflation has something to
do with it. However, even though
prices have gone up, the most im
portant thing is that in our kind of
semi-controlled, semi-governed in
flation (for that is what we have),
we can buy more today than we
ever could before, since we make
dollars, though each and every
dollar does buy a little less from
year to year.
Now, we know very well that if
our income would go down from
