GOD BECOMING MAN: THE INCARNATION

HOMILY OF THE NATIVITY OF THE LORD ( SOLEMNITY)

R1:- Isaiah 62:11-12; Isaiah 52:7-10
PS:- 97:1-.6.11-12; 98:1.2-3ab.3cd-4.5-6
R2:- Titus 3:4-7; Hebrew 1:1-6

Accl:- Luke 2:14; A hallowed day has shine upon us: come, O nation’s, and adore the Lord; for today a great light has come down to earth.
Gospel:- Luke 2:15-20; John 1:1-18 or John 1:1-5.9-14

Man always love to move from the known to the unknown.
He is always comfortable with the familiar. (This is one of the explanation for racism and tribal sentiments. Whatever is not from our stock is foreign).

However, to save man, God decided to become like him, so as to reach out to him and speak to him in the language he would understand. The mystery of Christ’s birth is that of a sincere and humble compromise for a genuine cause; God becoming man to save man.

The incarnation cannot stop at God becoming man. Sharing in our humanity, God wants us to share in his divinity which we have lost by the fall and our falls.

May our life be a home of welcome to the divine Saviour. May the birth of Christ lead us to a greater life, that we may fully share in the life of heaven. Amen.

Merry Christmas.

Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against
hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?

Having read this I thought it was rather informative.
I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this content together.
I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
But so what, it was still worth it!
