All things came to be through Him

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be.” (JN 1: 1-3)

St. John’s Gospel starts with the same beginning as the first book of the Old Testament: “in the beginning.” Now we can see the beauty of creation from the new perspective—“all things came to be through Him”—Our Lord. And because “without Him nothing came to be,” everything in my life communicates His presence. My existence and my history, my family and my friends, my life and my work—everything announces and proclaims His love for me—“the child of God.”

“The Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us. To those who accepted him he gave power to become the children of God.” (Gospel Acclamation)
