  • The birth of Jesus

    Matthew’s account focuses on Joseph. Mary is rarely mentioned. This may indicate Matthew’s Jewish audience. It is interesting to consider the risk in human terms what God the Father took. An illegitimate helpless child and a supposedly adulterous Mary could have been easily stoned by the population under mosaic law. However our omniscient God knows the beginning and the end, therefore risk is not in His vocabulary. Instead He entered time wrapped in death rags predestined to die in the most painful and humiliating way.

    The angel of the Lord spoke to Joseph, referring to his royal lineage and declaring “Do not fear but take Mary as your wife”. Where fear is banished, obedience begins! Joseph knew who Jesus was!

    When Joseph awoke he does what all just men do after an encounter with a Holy God. They walk in obedience! Joseph married Mary and he did not consummate the marriage until after Jesus’ birth. He adopts Jesus, formally bringing him into the royal Davidic line. He names the child according to what the Lord instructed. “Jesus” or “Joshua”  means “God Saves”. He shall save his people from their sins.

    Notice it says his people, not the world. His people are the true Israel called the church, the believers, by the Holy Spirit and redeemed by the blood of Christ. After all if you don’t believe what Jesus did for you, the cross is useless to you. You have chosen to remain under the law and the perfect law condemns every time. You have chosen to breach the ramparts of hell. Let me be very clear on this point. Our holy loving Father will never send anyone to hell, but He will allow it. It’s your own choice! As the old song by Frank Sinatra sings hollow: “I did it my way”. You can do it your way too!

    The French would say “the piece de resistance” is that the prophet Isaiah foretold the whole story 700 years earlier (Isaiah 7:14) “Behold, The virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel”. A miraculous light is shed on this document or a better phraseology would be the endorsement of the Holy Spirit.

    God chose a “just man” obedient to the Holy Spirit. Much can be written about just men. In Genesis 6:9 Noah was a just man; Mark 6:20 records John as a just man; in Luke 2:25, Simon joins the elusive group of just men, and even a gentile, a Roman no less Cornelius the centurion, in Acts 10:22 is announced as a just man. What an illustrious title to be recorded in the Holy writ as a “just man”. So what is a just man? These men were under the law [Torah] and as such strove to keep it. Not only to the letter but to the heart of the Torah. Pharisees kept the letter but neglected the heart of the law.

    The question I ask myself is this: would I be counted as a just man?  This is a sobering thought for any person who counts themselves among the chosen. Joseph had every legal right to abandon Mary according to the Mosaic law in Deuteronomy 24. Mary had not shared the vision concerning her pregnancy with Joseph. The betrothal contract was binding and an unfaithful wife would have been stoned to death.

    The story however has just begun. In the space of 33 years, God’s revelation to his people takes a giant step forward as the Old Testament prophecies are filled one by one by the Nazarene rabbi. The unfolding narrative of God’s plan for God’s people continues this day through His Church and the Holy Spirit. The cry throughout the land is answered by just men like Isaiah. Isaiah 7:8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” “Then I said, "Here I am! Send me”.

    Here I am!,  send me, may that be your cry!

  • Jesus says “apart from me you can do nothing.”

    Jesus says “apart from me you can do nothing.”

    John 15:5 – Jesus says “apart from me you can do nothing.” Humanity is totally dependent upon God for salvation. Human nature is frail, weak, and lost, and needs divine assistance and care if it is to be restored and renewed. This only happens when God’s generous and unmerited favour is bestowed to humanity, by which this process of regeneration/restoration may begin.
    Human nature was certainly…

    A imensidade da dor da Paixão de Cristo


    «Atendei e vede se há dor semelhante à minha dor» (Lm 1, 12)

    Cristo, na sua paixão, sofreu verdadeiramente a dor. Tanto a sensível, causada pelos tormentos corpóreos, como a interior, causada pela apreensão do mal, que se chama tristeza. Ora, ambas essas dores foram máximas em Cristo, entre as dores da vida presente. O que se explica por quatro razões.


    1. Primeiro, pelas causas da dor. Pois, a dor sensível teve como causa uma lesão corpórea cheia de acerbidade, tanto pela generalidade da paixão, como pelo gênero da mesma. Pois, a morte dos crucificados é acerbíssima, por serem trespassados em lugares nervosos e sobremaneira sensíveis, que são as mãos e os pés. E além disso, o peso mesmo do corpo pendente continuamente aumenta a dor; acrescentando-se ainda a diuturnidade dela, pois os crucificados não morrem logo como os mortos pela espada.

    Quanto à dor interna, teve as causas seguintes. Primeiro, todos os pecados do gênero humano, pelos quais satisfazia com os seus sofrimentos; por isso como que os avocou a si dizendo: «Os clamores dos meus pecados» (Sl 21, 1). Segundo e especialmente, a culpa dos judeus e dos outros, que lhe infligiram a morte; e sobretudo a dos discípulos, que se escandalizaram com a paixão de Cristo. Terceiro, ainda, a perda da vida do corpo, naturalmente horrível à natureza humana.

    2. Segundo, a grandeza da dor pode ser considerada relativamente à sensibilidade do paciente. Assim, o seu corpo tinha a melhor das compleições; pois, fora formado milagrosamente por obra do Espírito Santo. Porque nada é mais perfeito que o produzido por milagre, e por isso, o sentido do tato, que serve para perceber a dor, era em Cristo extremamente delicado. Também a alma, nas suas potências interiores, apreendia com grande eficácia toda as causas da tristeza.

    3. Terceiro, a grandeza da dor de Cristo na sua paixão pode ser considerada quanto à pureza da mesma dor. Pois, nos outros pacientes, mitiga-se a tristeza interior e também a dor externa, pela reflexão racional, causando uma certa derivação ou redundância das potências superiores para as inferiores. O que não se deu na paixão de Cristo, pois, a cada uma das potências permitia agir dentro do que lhe era próprio, como diz Damasceno.

    4. Quarto, a grandeza da dor de Cristo pode ser considerada quanto ao fato de ser a sua paixão e sua dor assumidas voluntariamente, com o fim de livrar o homem do pecado. Por isso, assumiu uma dor tão grande, que fosse proporcionada à grandeza do fruto dela resultante.

    Assim, pois, de todas essas causas simultaneamente consideradas, resulta claro que a dor de Cristo foi a máxima das dores.

    III, q. XLVI, a. 6.
