Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
December 30, 2018 – Sunday
Gospel: Luke 2:41-52“Why were you looking for me? Did you not know I must be in my Father’s house?
When we find ourselves in darkness, we will find Jesus in the Temple, available for us, to do some talk with us, a place where we can meditate on His words. Mary and Joseph showed us the way back to Jesus, when we lose our way.
When they couldn’t find Jesus, it was He who went away from Him. But in our case, it is us who turn away from Him. He never abandons us; He is always there waiting for us. And it is always He who takes the initiative to call us back, it’s just that we don’t seem to listen sometimes.
Jesus, may we never lost sight of you again. Mary and Joseph, help us not to lose sight of Him again.
