RCN Advent Reflection #31

Advent Reflection #31
John 1:1-5

This passage illustrates just how profound the Incarnation is. According to John, Jesus is God and it is through Him that all things came into existence. Everything, therefore, owes its existence to Jesus. Moreover, Jesus is said to be THE unconquerable light. That is power. And yet this magnificent power was born in a manger, composed of the frailty and weakness that characterizes flesh and blood.

Jesus is THE WORD.

Jesus is THE LIGHT.

Jesus is LORD.

We can never reflect too much upon the significance of the fact that the one who created all things, who is pure, unbridled light, came and lived among us. He did so because he loves us. He did so in order to save us. He did so, because this is who God is – Emmanuel – God with us.

We praise you Lord, for the mysterious beauty of your Incarnation.
