MARY MOST HOLY MOTHER OF GOD

 

 

WORD of the DAY 

So, they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger.    (Luke 2: 16)

How shall I live this Word?

Among the signs surrounding the birth of the Redeemer, those of the swaddling clothes and the manger are among the most cited because they reveal the great mystery of the Incarnation.  A God who makes Himself small; who comes in swaddling clothes; cared for by a woman, His Mother.  A God who makes Himself so humble as to be placed in a manger.  Regarding this last sign, a religious observed: “In a manger, where the food for the animals is found.  This means that He wanted to become our food.  He wants to be eaten.  He makes Himself available to us to become one thing with us…to be assimilated and to give us strength and hope”.

Lord Jesus, grant that each day, as on this first day of the new year, I may come to You, nourish myself with You to be transformed into You in the depths of my heart.

The Voice of Meister Eckhart, Mystic

We are all called to be the mothers of God, because God always needs to come into the world.  May God help us to desire that He be born in us.  AMEN!
