REFLEXION – THE NATIVITY OF THE LORD

THE NATIVITY OF THE LORD

 

“The Son of God made man to make us God”[1]

In this the mystery of Christmas can be summed up, a mystery that we will celebrate in a few more days.

Beautifully says our Directory of Spirituality (25):

“To become man God is the first and fundamental mystery of Jesus Christ and God was never so close to man and man was never so close to God as precisely at that moment: at the moment of the mystery of the Incarnation.”

Mystery of the Incarnation that becomes visible to our eyes at the moment of the birth of the Son of God, at Christmas!

God hides and finds himself where we least expect to find him.

The Angel had said to the shepherds: “Here is the sign: you will find a child wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” The sign of God… is not a clamorous miracle. God’s sign is his humility. God’s sign is that He becomes small; becomes a child; he lets himself be touched and asks for our love.

“How we men would wish a different, imposing, irrefutable sign of God’s power and greatness. But his sign invites us to faith and love, and therefore gives us hope: God is like that. He has power and is Goodness. He invites us to be similar to Him. Yes, we become similar to God if we allow ourselves to be marked with this sign; if we ourselves learn humility and, in this way, true greatness; if we renounce violence and use only the weapons of truth and love “

Dear worshipers:

Let us prepare ourselves to receive the God who becomes man for us and comes to earth in order to take us to heaven.

May this Christmas when Jesus comes to be born in a new way in our hearts he finds you well disposed and prepared to receive him

May the contemplation of the Holy Family of Nazareth make us grow in the knowledge of love of God and may we imitate the virtues of Jesus, Joseph and Mary.

Shifts for the month of December begin on Monday 14 at 3:00 p.m. And they end on Wednesday 16 at 6 in the morning, everyone is invited to register.

 

Merry Christmas everyone and God bless you!
