TO SEE WHAT YOU SEE AND
TO HEAR WHAT YOU HEAR
 
Jesus Christ is uniting Himself to us so closely that we ourselves become members of His body.
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
Today's readings offer us a sense of comfort. We have a tender image of the trusting child leading dangerous animals, and we think of the Christmas scene with the Christ-Child in the manger. Advent is about the coming of Christ in glory at the end of time. Throughout this great season the Church directs us in remembering that we are preparing for the "Advent" of Christ in the fullness of His mystery. We are deeply touched by the incredible humility of God becoming flesh as a tiny infant, but we also recognize that the Word of God becomes flesh, not just to touch our hearts, but to restore the world and everything in it to its true goodness.
 
Jesus came first as a baby and He will come again in His great glory on the last day, but He continues to come to us every day; guiding us and keeping us the right path to our heavenly Father. Someone once said, "Unless today the Word is made flesh, who would hear it?" One of the greatest mysteries of the Incarnation is Jesus Christ uniting Himself to us so closely that we ourselves become members of His Body.
 
In Luke's Gospel, Jesus rejoices and praises His Father. What does Jesus' prayer tell us about God and about ourselves? First, it tells us that God is both Father and Lord of heaven and earth. He is both Creator and Author of all that He has made; the first origin of everything. Jesus also tells us to stay away from pride, which can keep us from true love and knowledge of God. He also tells us to be simple of heart, like "babes" being total dependent, placing our trust in God Who gives us wisdom and strength.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Jesus has made it possible for us to personally know God as our Father. To see Jesus is to see and hear Who God is. In Jesus we see the perfect love of our heavenly Father.
