The Word Became Flesh

First Sunday after Christmas, Year C

Scripture: John 1:1-18

Here we have Salvation history in a nutshell. In the beginning was the “Word.” Word as verb: moving, creating, redeeming. Word: creating since the beginning, now here as an infant. The prophets proclaimed this would happen, right through to the last of the prophets: John the Baptist. We have the law, thanks to Moses. Now we receive grace and truth through Jesus, the only Son. He is the Light; the Light that no darkness can extinguish dawns on. Now we are invited to decide who is this child for us?
