Gospel: Matthew 2:13-18
“That what the Lord had said through the prophet might be fulfilled”
In today’s gospel, Joseph once again listened to the Lord when He instructed him to bring Jesus and run away to Egypt in order to be saved from Herod. In our lives, we may picture running away as a sign of weakness. But if we start listening to God even in contradicting situations, He can work through even the least of our days. Because He is working in us and through us.
As we celebrate the feast of the Holy Innocents today, may we continue letting the Lord to lead us where to go – to Egypt or Jerusalem, may we be confident knowing that whatever He says shall be fulfilled.
