John 20:1a and 2-8



A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

It always startles me when, so close to Christmas, we begin to hear Gospel stories about Christ's Passion and Resurrection. I'm still basking in the peace of the "Silent Night, Holy Night" -- and the Church is moving on!

What in truth is happening, is the Church has it right and I don't. Lest we forget, we're reminded that the coming of Christ as man was an act of pure love that always had Calvary as its purpose. The price of our salvation and the forgiveness of our many sins sins was costly. It was no less (and even more) than the jolting contrast between the peaceful scene at the Christmas Crib and the horror of the Cross.

In all of this, may our hearts be moved to greater love for our generous and merciful Lord. The Word became Flesh! Come let us adore Him!
