Your sentinels raise a cry, together they shout for joy, for they see directly, before their eyes, the LORD restoring Zion. Break out together in song, O ruins of Jerusalem!

All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God. Sing praise to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and melodious song.

Reading 2 Heb 1:1-6 Brothers and sisters: In times past, God spoke in partial and various ways to our ancestors through the prophets; in these last days, he has spoken to us through the Son, whom he made heir of all things and through whom he created the universe, who is the refulgence of his glory, the very imprint of his being, and who sustains all things by his mighty word. When he had accomplished purification from sins, he took his seat at the right hand of the Majesty on high, as far superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say: You are my son; this day I have begotten you? Or again: I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me? And again, when he leads the firstborn into the world, he says: Let all the angels of God worship him. Alleluia R. Alleluia, alleluia. A holy day has dawned upon us. Come, you nations, and adore the Lord. For today a great light has come upon the earth. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel Jn 1:1-18 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. A man named John was sent from God. He came for testimony, to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to testify to the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came to be through him, but the world did not know him. He came to what was his own, but his own people did not accept him. But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God, to those who believe in his name, who were born not by natural generation nor by human choice nor by a man’s decision but of God. And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth. John testified to him and cried out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’” From his fullness we have all received, grace in place of grace, because while the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God. The only Son, God, who is at the Father’s side, has revealed him.

In this day before the Christmas. I'm meditating on the what is all about from incarnation to crucifixion to ascending back to the father. “Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.” 1 John 4:11 (KJV) In the midst of all this heavenly epic there is the element of Love. Imagine if God didn't love, imagine if God punished us at spot and so on. That would be an impossible life to live. Yet, God's wisdom was to go the upper way and to teach us to Love. He Loved us to death so we can love one another. This kind of love don't come natural to us but rather takes effort. Can imagine what it takes to love someone you don't love? It's like having to go to the cross. He did it to set the example. Jesus is the reason of the season. Not some store deals. Not some special food. Not the day off. Not the $600 or $2000 cheque that might come or not. It's Jesus and only Jesus.
