Seventh Day of the Christmas Octave

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD Tuesday December 31, 2019 Seventh Day of the CHRISTMAS OCTAVE WORD of the DAY 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. (John 1: 1-3) How shall I live this Word? “In the beginning” …, but aren’t we at the end of the year? Of course, but the Word speaks to us of ‘a beginning’ not tied to the passage of time, but ‘a beginning’ that leads us to reflect on the meaning given to the time we live. It is ‘the beginning’ placed at the origin of our existence, of the cosmos, the ‘beginning’ that was with God and was God, “All things came to be through Him.” The greatness of this affirmation leads us to feel within the story of love that binds the Word to the Father in the Spirit. We are not only in this story, but also are actors in this story, we are loved and continue to be loved in the relationship between the Word and the...

THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT

  FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT December 15, 2019 WORD of the DAY   The wilderness and the parched land will exult; the Arabah will rejoice and bloom;  Like the crocus it shall bloom abundantly, and rejoice with joyful song. (Isaiah 35: 1-2)  When John heard in prison of the works of the Messiah, he sent his disciples to him with this question, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?”  (Matthew 11: 2-3)   How shall I live this Word? I hear steps approaching. Is it really God who must come? In the prison, John faces a great question. Is that man being spoken of really the Messiah? The position of the Baptist is hard.   Herod is making him pay for the courage of reproaching him for his bad conduct, but he is only interested, beyond his bitter destiny, in knowing the truth.  And the answer to his question is great, vital. To his disciples who went to question the mysterious Teacher, a scenario of salvation, of mercy opens up: “the blind see, the crippled walk …” It is the spring of life that echoes the words of Isaiah, “desert...
