Weekly Newsletter: December 11-17



As far as the statement of Zacharias is concerned, For your prayer has been heard, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, we must not be of the opinion that the high priest who had gone in to pray for the people suddenly changed his mind and prayed for his own private concerns; that he began to ask especially for children when he had completely abandoned hope of begetting any, inasmuch as he was an old and infirm man—he would not believe, even at the promise of an angel, that a son could be born to him. But of this, we must definitely be aware that he was asking for the salvation of his people. He knew that they were troubled by a very great burden of sin, and that in addition they were oppressed by the domination of a foreign king. Hence, from the angel’s account, he recognized that he had been heard and learned in what manner the salvation that he had been seeking would come: there would be born to him a son who would be a prophet and outstanding teacher; and his son would turn this people to the way of truth and the hope of meriting salvation; and that soon after this there would follow the Savior Himself, who would endow them with the gifts of the heavenly kingdom. – Venerable Bede
