God’s Mercy and Light

Tuesday, 24-12-2013

Readings for the day:

2Samuel 7:1-5,8b-12,14a,16
Psalm 89:2-3,4-5,27,29
Luke 1:67-69


I will sing forever of your Mercies o Lord.- Psalm 89:2

After Zechariah has been healed, he was filled with the holy spirit and he prophesied what is now known as the Benedictus or Songs of Zechariah- A song of thanksgiving and a proclamation of God’s mercy as he has spoken through his holy prophets from of old.

All through the season of advent, we hear the Voice of John the baptist who is an important part of the scheme of redemption calling us to repentance, changing from our old ways and seeking God’s forgiveness out of his superabundant mercy. This time avails us to prepare earnestly so as to receive the Light from heavenly throne deep within our hearts. Jesus’ birth is our most perfect light and the perfect guide for our feet to the way of peace. Let us then open our hearts for this Perfect light to illuminate us with the perfect joy to radiate the world with.

May this Christmas shower our Life with God’s Mercy and the Perfect Light from Heaven leading us to the way of Peace, Amen.
