Liturgical day: Tuesday 1st of Advent

Gospel text (Lk 10,21-24): «I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and made them known to the little ones».
Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit and said, «I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and made them known to the little ones. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. I have been given all things by my Father, so that no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and he to whom the Son chooses to reveal him».

Then Jesus turned to his disciples and said to them privately, «Fortunate are you to see what you see, for I tell you that many prophets and kings would have liked to see what you see but did not, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it».

Today we endeavor to become small to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The Son of God will come to Earth as all children do: He will be born of Mary, very small, very small... and He is God! Those who consider themselves great and important do not see God…

--I have to be humble; I have to become "small" to see the Small-God. Heavenly Father, bless me so I can welcome your Son by singing as the angels, with joy.
