Liturgical day: Tuesday 2nd of Advent

Gospel text (Mt 18,12-14): If someone has a hundred sheep and one of them strays, won't he leave the ninety-nine on the hillside, and go to look for the stray one? Jesus said to his disciples, «What do you think of this? If someone has a hundred sheep and one of them strays, won't he leave the ninety-nine on the hillside, and go to look for the stray one? And I tell you: when he finally finds it, he is more pleased about it than about the ninety-nine that did not get lost. It is the same with your Father in heaven: there they don't want even one of these little ones to be lost».

Today Jesus tells us how His Father God behaves: He loves each one of us, personally. All men and women are equally important for Him. We are His children! And "in the same way, your Father in Heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish” Although I was the only sinner of our humanity, God would also come to this world to save me.

-Christmas: "Little God". Let us become small and recognize that we need His help.
