for the life was made visible

“What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we looked upon and touched with our hands concerns the Word of life —for the life was made visible; we have seen it and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was made visible to us—what we have seen and heard we proclaim now to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; for our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.” (1 JN 1: 1-3)

“For the life was made visible; we have seen it and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was made visible to us”—visible, hearable, touchable: God is among us. Every Eucharist is a wonderful mystery of Our Lord’s presence; hidden but visible, silent but hearable, reduced to small piece of bread but touchable.

“We praise you, O God, we acclaim you as Lord; the glorious company of Apostles praise you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
