Monday of the CHRISTMAS OCTAVE

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD Monday December 30, 2019 Sixth Day of the CHRISTMAS OCTAVE WORD of the DAY There was also a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years, having lived seven years with her husband after her marriage, and then as a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple, but worshiped night and day with fasting and prayer. And coming forward at that very time, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were awaiting the redemption of Jerusalem. (Luke 2: 36-38) How shall I live this Word? The prophetess Anna makes us touch the consequences of waiting lived with fidelity and hope. This woman has remained capable for many years, in the midst of suffering and effort, to wait, to turn her gaze forward without bending with nostalgia and resentment towards the past. And it was this ability to wait, to stay in the temple, keeping an authentic desire alive, which allowed her to recognize that Child among the many children and to point Him out to all those who “awaited the redemption of Jerusalem” (Lk 2: 38...

  Joy to the world–this is the phrase. This is the idea. This is the concept but the reality and the feeling that has been ringing out for 2000 years since Jesus was born in the manger.

THIRD TUESDAY OF ADVENT

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD THIRD TUESDAY OF ADVENT CHRISTMAS NOVENA December 17, 2019 WORD of the DAY The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham… Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Messiah. (Matthew 1: 1/16) How shall I live this Word? An infinite history that traces its roots from Abraham, our Father in the faith. A history that exudes humanity, sin and grace, like the life of every man and woman. A history that does not exclude guilt, sin, misery, mystery. Jesus, the Messiah, does not build a spotless genealogy for Himself. He came to live among us. He is God with us who takes on the shadows of our humanity and with mercy bends over those who feel the weight of their life. The long chain of those who walked before us in past centuries finally opens up to a radiant hope. There is a woman who, although she is part of the group on the way to the future, detaches herself and generates Christ, the Savior. Today, I will turn to Mary, invoking her with...

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...
