Visit of the Shepherds to Jesus and his Mother
The marginalised are God’s favourites

Luke 2,16-21 

 

1. Opening prayer

Lord Jesus, send your Spirit to help us to read the Scriptures with the same mind that you read them to the disciples on the way to Emmaus. In the light of the Word, written in the Bible, you helped them to discover the presence of God in the disturbing events of your sentence and death. Thus, the cross that seemed to be the end of all hope became for them the source of life and of resurrection.

Lectio Divina: John 1,19-28

All-power and ever-living God,
you give us a new vision of your glory
