St. Philip asked Jesus, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied,”
Jesus answered, “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father” ( Jn 14: 8-9).
The humanity of Jesus in all its aspects, even those that are apparently humblest and least important, is for us an immense space for communion with God. Every aspect of his humanity, each of his characteristics, even the smallest and most hidden, each of his words, deeds, and gestures, every stage of his life from his conception in Mary’s womb to his Ascension, brings us into communion with God the Father…
By exploring his humanity like a piece of land that belongs to us…we grow steadily in communion with the inaccessible, unfathomable mystery of God. (Excerpt from Time for God by Fr. Jacques Philippe )
A MORNING OFFERING
O Lord, I offer You this day. During this Advent, give me a love for the mystery of Your Incarnation. I praise You for your time in the womb and offer my day today in reparation for the sins against the unborn of our world. Amen
