Daily reflection _ to see and to hear what you see and hear

"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 comfort us. 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 also about the coming of Christ in glory at the end of time. Throughout this great season the Church directs us that we remember 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 in 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. Christ Jesus came as a baby and will come in glory on the last day, but Jesus also comes every day to guide us and keep us the right path to our heavenly Father.
Points to Pray and Ponder: In the Gospel Jesus said, "many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, and to hear what you hear." Someone once told me "unless today the Word be 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.
