Taste and See: The gift of God’s love

IMG_1088 Epstein Madonna and child.jpgGospel Acclamation

Alleluia, alleluia!
The Word was made flesh and lived among us: to all who did accept him
he gave power to become children of God. Alleluia!

Jn1:14,12

The Gospel Acclamation above is one of the two offered for use at Mass last Sunday, the 12th Sunday of Ordinary Time.

The Gospel of the Day speaks of our call to faithfulness to Jesus. The acclamation reminds of his radical commitment to us – evidenced in the Mystery of the Incarnation – God taking flesh and not just for the 33 years or so of Jesus life on earth, but remaining joined with us in the flesh after the Resurrection and the Ascension. God in flesh is one with us for ever.

May we choose likewise: to be one with him, and for ever…
