Homily (Reflection) for Weekdays of Advent: 21st December, 2018 on the Gospel
Ps 32:2-3.11-12.20-21. (R. vv. 1.3);
Topic: Mary’s visit to Elizabeth.
As we come closer and closer to Christmas, Jesus wants us to visit others especially those who need our help just as He and His mother did in today’s gospel. It is important to note among other things that the gospel did not tell us the things Mary and Jesus took along while visiting Elizabeth. Mary’s greeting alone brought about divine transformation in the life of Elizabeth and her unborn child. So even if you have nothing material, your visit alone worth more than what you can imagine. Again, delay might be dangerous. Mary set out immediately. So, why delay? Set out today or even now.
This visit ought not be limited to one’s friends and relatives alone, cf. Ex 23:5; Prov 25:21. Jesus is the king of peace, cf. Is 9:6.
Bible Reading: Ex 23:1-9.
Thought for today: Visit someone today and/or during this season, cf. Matt 25:36, 43.
Let us pray: May Jesus the King of peace accompany us as we visit others – Amen.
