DATE/DAY: DECEMBER, 16, 2008, TUESDAY
TIME: 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM, PST
EVENT: 2 OF 9 NIGHTS VIGIL
SYMBOL: Family Tree
THEME: Family and Friends
1ST READING: Genesis 49:2,8-10
GOSPEL: Matthew 1:1-17
REFLECTION: Every year we hear Jesus' family tree, all the way back to David. There are so many generations, it seems possible that everyone in Israel is related to Jesus. In fact the Book of Chronicles whows almost 4,000 years of ancestors to Jesus, who was born over 2,000 years ago. If we really stop to consider our own known and unknown relations, we might see the world a little differently. Do that, just for today.
