God Lives Amongst Us

Run Time: 10:36.  Gospel: Jn 6:51-58.

This mind boggling mystery in its utter simplicity, that God says something and it happens, reveals to us how much Jesus loves us.  It is that prolongation of God’s presence in the world that demonstrates to us His care, concern and love for us.  The fact that He loves us so much that He wants His own life to flow through our veins.  To accompany us always and everywhere until we see Him unveiled, truly in His body in heaven.  But for the time being He is present to us in this mystery, no less real, than what we will participate in, in eternity.  And so it is then, this incomprehensible, apparently contradictory, mystery.  That the fulfillment of the ancient prophecy that the Savoir would be called Emanuel … which means “God is with us”, has come to fulfillment.  That though we have sinned, Christ still loves us so much that He will not abandon us.  He lives amongst us even now. … No longer in sign and symbol, but in reality – God lives amongst us.  He stays with us, He walks with us to share and redeem and give meaning to every detail of our lives.  That is the example of love.
