“In the Flesh”

>> Readings

7 January 2019

St. John writes with the discernment of a man of God.

For some reason, a heresy called Gnosticism gained momentum in the early years. Amongst other things, it denied that Jesus came in the flesh.

But the Church has always believed that the “Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Furthermore, this truth is celebrated in our act of worship:

“What he was, he remained and what he was not, he assumed,” sings the Roman Liturgy (CCC 469).

In 2019 we sing:

Lord, you remain God and you become one of us.

Praised be Jesus Christ!
