All Saints Novena Day 8 October 30, 2010

Speaking again on the phrase     "how much more will the manifestation of the Father by the Word...."

I highlight "by the word" to  emphasize the word as Jesus Himself. St John states:  The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.  (John 1:14).  And Jesus did infinitely more than just appear to us and teach us and make himself known to us.  Although He did all of those things perfectly, his primary work was the work of salvation, dying on the cross to show us what maximum love and sacrifice truly meant. 


Thank you for showing yourself to us and completing the work of salvation by dying for our sins.  Let us live by your example, not being content with only part of what we know you desire from us, knowing that you would not ask us to do what you yourself would not enable us to do.  Help us to seek your face and your guidance always.
