The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us

Jesus, our Lord and our brother, is a person who lives with us and in us.  There are signs of his coming and of his continued presence, everywhere in our lives.

We see wonder and awe in the eyes of a child - the word was made flesh and dwells among.
We pass the homeless on our streets.....
We acknowledge the wisdom of the elderly.....
We visit a dying person and sense courage in the midst of frailty...
We see pictures of children killed, of parents weeping, of soldiers with guns......
We visit family and friends and enjoy the moments together.....
We give hope to refugees fleeing from harm......
May our lives be filled with love and care for all who come our way.
