Christmas Magnifies The Pain Of The Human Heart

I hope you are filled with the joy of Christmas today, but Christmas also magnifies the pain of the human heart. Here are some of the needs and problems to be aware that many, if not most, people are facing at this time of year...

Searching for a purpose Searching for an identity A lack of meaning Loneliness Emptiness Marriage Divorce Out of wedlock pregnancy Birth of a child Loss of a child First job Fired from job Business failure Financial crisis Moral failure Midlife crisis Stalled career Failed romance Loss of physical strength Sense of mortality Empty nest Health crisis Aging parents Loss of parents

Each of these needs is also a potential turning point. So let's be on the lookout, especially over the next couple of weeks, for people wondering how the "Mass of Christ" can heal their hearts.

Until we reach every man...
