God’s love was revealed in our midst in this way:  He sent His only Son …  that we might have life through Him.  - 1 Jn 4:9

Reflection.  The Lord was made flesh — He became our brother — to save us from our pride, our disorder, our selfish selves.  He tells us that indeed we have great value, that each one of us is precious.  He tells us of God’s Unchanging Love.  He speaks of justice, human dignity, freedom.  Jesus shows the way.

Prayer.  Dear Lord, grant that I may be an extension of Your hands, Your eyes, Your loving Heart in this troubled world.  I delight in knowing that You live in me and act through me.
