“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Hebrews 1:1-3

TODAY’S WORD…

.

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways,

but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things,

and through whom also He made the universe.

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful word.

After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

– Hebrews 1:1-3 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

God has spoken to us through His Son Jesus Christ, His true (natural and metaphysical) Son,

to whom He gave great power, making Him the heir of all things;

through whom, also, He created the universe.

Jesus, with His sublime dignity, reflects the glory of God;

He is Lord of the universe, raised up to the very throne of His Father

.

Jesus is the pinnacle and fullness of salvific Revelation,

as the Second Vatican Council reminds us:

"After God had spoken many times and in various ways through the prophets ‘in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son’.

For He sent His Son, the eternal Word who enlightens all men, to dwell among men and to tell them about the inner life of God […].

He did this by the total fact of His presence and self-manifestation

– by words and works, signs and miracles,

but above all by His death and glorious resurrection from the dead,

and finally by sending the Spirit of truth.

He revealed that God was with us, to deliver us from the darkness of sin and death,

and to raise us up to eternal life."

Jesus, how great Thou art!
