SEVENTH DAY WITHIN THE OCTAVE OF THE NATIVITY OF THE LORD DECEMBER 31, 2021


A reading of the holy Gospel according to Jn 1:1-18


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. A man named John was sent from God. He came for testimony, to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to testify to the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came to be through him, but the world did not know him. He came to what was his own, but his own people did not accept him. But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God, to those who believe in his name, who were born not by natural generation nor by human choice nor by a man’s decision but of God. And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only-begotten Son, full of grace and truth. John testified to him and cried out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’” From his fullness we have all received, grace in place of grace, because while the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God. The only-begotten Son, God, who is at the Father’s side, has revealed him.


REFLECTION

What came to be from him was life, and this

life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”


Love lived in heaven. Love came down from heaven to introduce us to His Father. We fell in love with the Baby. And this Living Light dwells in us and transforms us into sons and daughters of His Father.


This child cuddles up next to us, sleeps in our arms and asks us to serve Him in His every needs.


May God‘s Word live in us and may we see Him in all our brothers and sisters. And what do we want for those we love? Their sanctification and salvation.

Let us not waste or discard this precious gift from God.

"He comes to find another heaven, the heaven of our soul, in which He likes to dwell." (St Therese of Lisieux)

God bless you.

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE
