The Psalm for the day reinforces this theme by comforting me that “Our souls will be rescued like a bird from the fowler’s snare” with the promise the Lord is with me. As I read the Gospel again, the connection between the first reading and last one of the day becomes clearer in my mind. The Father did protect his son Jesus as a child by sending an angel to Joseph and warning him to flee with his family to Egypt. Once again I can see God is there to intervene with his grace. What struck me most is that whether dealing with the Holy Family or an ordinary sinner like myself I know I’ll always have an Advocate if I choose to walk in the path of light. This fits well in the spiritual journey I took during the Advent Season and now celebrating these weeks during the Christmas Season. The light that shines from my still-lit Christmas tree points to the birth of Jesus and the ultimate fulfillment of salvation history for myself and all mankind.
