Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Malachi 3:1-6 & Luke 1:57-66
Humanity needs God to be with us! Left to our own designs we muddle around in our lives putting out fires here, sticking our finger in the dyke there, and generally frittering away this incredible gift called ‘human being’. But with God being with our understanding of life, we find ourselves being refined into a purity of purpose and power to be loved and to love, and to make sense of the harmonies of the never-changing transformations and songs of heaven and earth. Will I open my heart, mind, soul and strength this Christmas to welcome God’s human expression of himself into my own existence, into my own family, my own community? O come, Emmanuel... be with us!
‘What then will this child become?’ For indeed, the hand of the Lord was with him. (Luke 1:66)
Listen, my people!
Your hopes are answered!
God waits for his people...
Archbishop Paul-Andre Durocher, Listen, My People, #309, CBW III
