«In the “fullness of time” (Gal 4:4), when everything had been arranged according to his plan of salvation, he sent his only Son into the world, born of the Virgin Mary, to reveal his love for us in a definitive way» (MV 1).
«This love has now been made visible and tangible in Jesus’ entire life. His person is nothing but love, a love given gratuitously » (MV 8).
«... it is not the same thing to have known Jesus as not to have known him, not the same thing to walk with him as to walk blindly, not the same thing to hear his word as not to know it, and not the same thing to contemplate him, to worship him, to find our peace in him, as not to. It is not the same thing to try to build the world with his Gospel as to try to do so by our own lights. We know well that with Jesus life becomes richer and that with him it is easier to find meaning in everything» (EG 266).
«How much good it does us when he once more touches our lives and impels us to share his new life!» (EG 264)
We give you an appointment at the manger ... we will contemplate and adore Jesus, the face of the Father's Mercy!
Let us be transformed by His Love ...
Merry Christmas and blessed Year of Mercy 2016 !
We are united with you in prayer!
