One Minute Reflection – 24 December
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us……..John 1:14
REFLECTION: Indeed, let us rejoice that we are unequal to the task
of giving due praise to so great a sacrament of mercy
(that is, the Nativity);
and if we are unable to express the sublimity
of the manner of our redemption,
let us know that it is good for us to be so helpless.
For none approaches more closely
to the knowledge of the truth than he who realises
that in matters divine there ever remains,
far more to attain,
no matter how far he progresses…St Pope Saint Leo the Great (400-461) Father & Doctor of the Church
PRAYER – Come Lord Jesus, come soon. In this time of Your coming, support and console us who trust in Your love. We welcome Him with joy as our Redeemer; year by year renew our joy as we await the fulfilment of our redemption. The time is now at hand for the Virgin Mary to give birth to her firstborn Son! Through Jesus Christ our Lord, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever, amen.
