THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Today we hear the beautiful prologue to John’s Gospel. It would be
worth finding the tome to meditate on these verses during the week. They
are beautifully rich. "In the beginning was the Word…" in Greek, logos.
This logos (word) has far more meaning than it’s English translation can
give. It refers to all-knowledge; all-being; that which is forever; the
Word that is Diving; Creator of the universe, Being, God, Father, and
Mother of all things.
We read in this prologue that not one thing came to be without God.
Do we really see God at the centre of all things? In our environment, in
nature, in all created beings? Science tells us our universe is 13.8
billion years old. We cannot even conceive of such a time scale. John
tells us of God at that point, at that great flaring forth of all
creation, when everything came to be. This Word was with God at that
moment and was God.
If we truly believe in the incarnation, let us be alert and awake to
the Incarnation of God every day in our lives; Christ present in all
people, in every created thing, for God is fully at work in creation at
every stage, then, now, and forever. For creation and incarnation are
not different events, but the same event, the same process.
"God is always incarnate, always bound to the world as its lover, as
close to it, as we are to our own bodies, and con-cerned before all else
to see that the body, God’s world, flourishes." –Sallie McFague
