A Blessed New Year to All!


Now his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying: “Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, for He has visited and redeemed His people…. (Luke 1:67-68)

By His appearance in the flesh, our Lord visited us when we were drawing farther away from Him, and He took care to seek out and justify us when we were lying in sins. He visited us as a physician does a patient who is ill, and, in order to cure the ingrained sickness of our pride, He provided for us the unheard of example of His own humility. He brought about the redemption of His people by giving us freedom, at the price of His own blood—we who had been sold into the slavery of sin and were held bound to serving the ancient enemy. Hence the Apostle exhorts us, saying, “For you have been purchased at a great price; glorify and carry God in your bodies…” Do you want to see hear, my brothers, in what condition He found this people, and what He made of them? He found us sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death, weighed down by the long-standing blindness of sins and ignorance, beguiled by the deception and besieged by the errors of the ancient enemy. Our Lord brought us the true light of recognition of Himself, and having taken away the darkness of errors, opened up for us a sure way to the heavenly fatherland. – Bede the Venerable
