See and Hear the Word Made Flesh

Jesus is the Word made flesh and he is in our midst.  Those who do not fail to see and hear him, and do what he says, turn into relatives of his. It looks like Jesus does not find it hard to see and hear folks tell him, “Your mother and brother are out there and want...

Homes in the Kingdom of Heaven

Jesus is like us in all things but sin.  He is not a stranger to the joys, sorrows, light and glory that our homes know. They say that tough times bring out the best and the worst in us and, of course, in our homes.  In the face of crises and uncertainties, some folks...

Go and See the Child Lying in the Manger

Jesus is little and poor.  We are to go and see and live his being little and poor, so that we may be clean and free of pride and greed that spell ruin.  As the shepherds get the good news about the Savior’s birth, great fear takes hold of them. For a great and...

Go out of the Old World of Old Men

Jesus sees fit to go out of the bosom of the Father to announce the Good News to the poor and to bring in the new heavens and the new earth.  It seems that John, like Jeremiah, has the Lord’s word in his heart as a fire one cannot put out. It makes the son of...

Tasks for the Servants of Jesus

Jesus has chosen and brought us to his house.  And he has assigned us tasks that we have to carry out as we wait for him to come back. There are not a few of us who do not do not fulfill our assigned tasks.  Is this due to our not being of those who are wise,...

Brother Especially to the Outcasts

Shepherd and King, Jesus leads us and saves us.  He is a brother to all, especially to those who are poor.  He wants us to be brothers and sisters to all as he is. Our Leader and Savior is not ashamed to call us brothers and sisters.  This, of course, means that he is...
