[The Word] came to his own, yet his own people did not receive him; but all who have received him he empowers to become children of God for they believe in his Name.
Today we hear the Prologue to the Gospel of Saint John. It is very profound. It proclaims the divinity of the Child born of the Virgin Mary: He is God-Son. He has become a man, one of us. He wants to have his "home" among us. But, despite everything, many have not accepted it!
-The shepherds and simple people have received it. And when we accept it, the great miracle takes place: we become children of God. This is the greatest!
