He Is Born and Nothing Will Ever Be the Same

Fr-Lawrence-Lew-OP
Share

How deep, how vast, how reckless is His love for us

You, His voice, His Hands, His Temple, His Home.

To be born in you so that you may say, with your words and with your life, to everyone you meet: Christ is born!

The Healer of the Breach has come, taking our flesh to make of His flesh the bridge to God.

When He came the First Time in the Flesh, He was born in small, insignificant Bethlehem, and lived His entire Life in the small enclosure of the Holy Land.

Tonight, when Christ comes again in the Flesh, in the Eucharist receive Him and become His New Bethlehem so that He might be born in you. Become, like Bethlehem, small and insignificant in the eyes of the world so that Christ might find a home in you.

And let Him make you into His New Holy Land, so that, as once He walked and spoke and loved in Palestine, He may walk and speak and love through you.

So that, through you, His New Home, Salvation may break forth into the World today, because today Christ wants to be born in you.
