“A voice of one calling in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way for the Lord” Isaiah 40:3.


Black Friday is around the corner and then its Cyber Monday, the two busiest shopping days of the year. But before you whip out the credit card and start ordering away, here is a question for you, how are you preparing the way for the Lord?  Advent is not about shopping but about preparing for the birth of our Savior, who was born in a manager.  The Christmas message is so clear.


That new sweater, food processor, lap top, or iPad may bring temporary happiness and make your life more enjoyable and comfortable in the short term, but they won't bring us real joy.  Strive to find true and lasting joy this holiday season by putting the Christ Child first.


That is what my new book, God's Bucket List: Heaven's Sure Fire Way to Happiness in This Life and Beyond is all about.  Consider putting it on your shopping list this Christmas.  After all, if you are a believer, shouldn't it be a priority to discern whether the ways we are spending our money and time are in line with God's plan for our lives?


Thanks to EWTN and Catholic News Agency (CNA) for graciously featuring an article about God's Bucket List today on their front news headlines.
