I know, you are thinking "I already see, how do you think I'm reading this?" In today's beautiful advent reflection you will discover what it really means to see. God wants us to have eyes that can see the beauty of His majesty and power. Most of the time we cannot see God although He is in our midst. Open your eyes and be amazed! His grace, mercy, and love surround you in ways that you may not have seen before.
Renowned Scripture scholar, Frances Hogan, helps us prepare our hearts this season through her beautiful reflections.
The Messiah, our Lord, is with us. The psalmist tells us that we must rejoice as we go up to the Lord.
The prophet Isaiah prophesies about the Messianic golden age, where the wolf would lie down with the lamb and the leopard would rest beside the kid. He puts absolute opposites together!
Jesus offers Himself to be our nourishing food. The very same Jesus who was born in the manger is alive and present in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
We ourselves can become a Bethlehem, where the Lord will take flesh. The Christmas mystery can happen in us and the Lord can become incarnate in us.
