Tuesday, 1st Week of Advent
Bl. Bernardo Francisco de Hoyos, Priest
Is 11:1 – 10 / Lk 10:21 – 24
Born in Valladolid, Bl. Bernardo Francisco de Hoyos (1711 – 1735) is considered the first apostle of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Spain. With a reputation for holiness, he was ordained a priest on 02 January 1735; he died of typhus on 29 November 1735. He was beatified in Valladolid on 18 April 2010.
From the 1st Reading: Is 11: 6 – 8
The wolf will dwell with the lamb, the leopard will rest beside the kid, the calf and the lion cub will feed together and a little child will lead them. Befriending each other, the cow and the bear will see their young ones lie down together. Like cattle, the lion will eat hay. By the cobra's den the infant will play. The child will put his hand into the viper's lair.
Gospel Reading: Lk 10: 21 – 24
At that time Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit and said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and made them known to the little ones. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. I have been given all things by my Father, so that no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and he to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."
Then Jesus turned to his disciples and said to them privately, "Fortunate are you to see what you see, for I tell you that many prophets and kings would have liked to see what you see but did not, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."
Advent is the season of waiting and expectation for the coming of the Lord, when peace and justice will reign.
In the first reading, Isaiah describes the peace and harmony characteristic of the Messianic times, as seen from animals peacefully living together, the leopard with the kid, the calf and the lion cub, the cobra and the child.
In the Gospel reading Jesus reminds his disciples how fortunate they were to learn about the Father and the Son and about God's love for us from the Son of God himself: "Fortunate are you to see what you see, for I tell you that many prophets and kings would have liked to see what you see but did not, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."
We thank God for the gift of our faith. May it always be strong in us, influencing and guiding our daily choices and lives?
