Thought of the Day March 25, 2020 Incarnate Love

By 10:29 AM

As we celebrate this Solemnity of the Annunciation, we are really acknowledging the mystery of the Incarnation. The Son of God took our flesh, God became man. Reflecting on this, I share with you the words of Pope Leo the Great.

"He took the nature of a servant without stain of sin, enlarging our humanity without diminishing his divinity. He emptied himself; though invisible he made himself visible, though Creator and Lord of all things he chose to be one of us mortal men. Yet this was the condescension of compassion, not the loss of omnipotence. So he who in the nature of God had created man, became in the nature of a servant, man himself."

There is much to ponder in this mystery. It centers around the question "why". Why did God acted so drastically? One word alone helps us understand. Love. "God so loved the world that he gave us his only begotten Son." This is the Feast of Incarnate Love. Thank you, Lord, for your tremendous love for us!
