Go and Glorify the Lord

21 Dec 2013 by SHRCChurch, No Comments »

Altar Vessels - 01Scholars of the Sacred Scriptures have pointed out that Joseph, as espoused to Mary, must have been well aware of her piety and holiness. Upon seeing God working in her mysteriously making her with child, Joseph may very well in his humility have asked himself: what role am I to play in this Divine plan? As a righteous man himself, his inclination might well have been to step aside and let God perform his work. Yet God sent an angel (messenger) to tell Joseph that he too had a role to play in the coming of Emmanuel (God dwelling with us).

When we receive Communion at Mass (Jesus dwelling in us) and are dismissed with the words “Go in peace glorifying the Lord with your life” do we take our role in the Divine plan seriously in taking Emmanuel to the world around us?
