SECOND SUNDAY OF CHRISTMAS
Today we hear the beautiful prologue to John’s Gospel. It would be worth finding the time to meditate on these verses during the week. We read in this prologue that not one thing came to be without God. Do we really see God at the centre of all things? If we truly believe in the incarnation, let us be alert and awake to the incarnation of God every day in our lives; Christ present in all people, in every created thing, for God is fully at work in creation at every stage, then, now and forever. For creation and incarnation are not different events, but the same event, the same process.
‘God is always incarnate, always bound to the world as its lover, as close to it, as we are to our own bodies, and concerned before all else to see that the body, God’s world, flourishes.’
