Brothers (Sisters):

We prepare ourselves to celebrate Advent, the “waiting time” in which each year we are offered as a time of Grace and Mercy so that, as children of God, we have the opportunity to mature and walk towards final conversion.

 

We must live this liturgical celebration more deeply, more mystically, so that we may live and internalize the mystery of that Child of the Crib who leads us to the final Parousia where the new creation of the New Heaven and the New Earth will begin. the Apocalypse speaks (cf. Rev 21.1).

This waiting for us, brothers, is not a fiction,IT IS THE GREATEST TRUTH THAT MAN CAN LIVE , but unfortunately that lamp that should remain full of fresh oil is saturated with the human self, which is so difficult for man to give up while there is no definitive reconciliation with Christ.

 

IT IS ADVENT, BROTHERS, THAT TIME BETWEEN THE “ALREADY” AND THE “YET STILL NOT”, THE “NOW” OF THE INCARNATION AND THE “YET NOT” OF THE SCATOLOGICAL PLENITUDE.

THAT CHILD OF THE PESEBRE IS PRESENT IN THE MIDDLE OF US AND ITS PRESENCE WILL CONTINUE UNTIL THE END OF TIME.

We live, yes, in the midst of Humanity devoid of Divine Love, of respect for our neighbor, of the pride that man takes from the devil, in the midst of injustice and the misery of the human heart, in the midst of the death of innocents, of creatures who do not know about the arrival of Christmas, because they live not only in misery, but in the midst of war, which does not allow them a break, in the midst of those who grow up hungry and thirsty and support themselves because they believe and do not renounce faith in God, in addition to being persecuted.

 

Therefore, brothers,WE OFFER THE CHILD GOD THE FINAL DECISION OF THE CONVERSION , to be every moment worthy to be called children of God and to love our neighbor as ourselves, not as enemies to whom we must chase.

 

Do not live this Christmas with a commercial or worldly sense, but before the moment in which we live, spiritually transcend and look from the perspective of hope, eager to pray for each other, to work for each other and share LOVE THAT IN THE MYSTERY OF THE INCARNATION PARTICIPATES US THAT GERM OF DIVINE LOVE AND THAT THEN BECOMES A MAN FOR THE SALVATION OF HUMANITY.

 

For the children of God, listening to the voice of the one who preached in the desert must bear fruit and motivate us to be human creatures open to the Love of God, to our neighbor and to be messengers of peace that alert each brother in time and untimely so that the Lord finds us with his arms crossed and his mouth covered, but THAT WE KEEP IN THAT CONSTANT WAITING AND DESIRING THAT THAT BIRTH OF THE CHILD JESUS ​​ACHIEVE THAT IN US NAZCA THE BURNING DESIRE TO BE ALL OF JESUS ​​AND ALL OF MARY HOLY.
