manifested in the flesh

“Undeniably great is the mystery of devotion, Who was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed to the Gentiles, believed in throughout the world, taken up in glory.” (1 TM 3: 16) 

How often we envy the Angels for their spiritual functioning, being once again perplexed by our corporeality, which still causes us problems. We dream about being free from all these corporal temptations, our weaknesses and sometimes even sins. But Our Lord “was manifested in the flesh” and He sits in Heaven “in the flesh.” Because this is important for Our Lord, it should also be important for us. Our Lord is Love and is “in the flesh” so we can also communicate our love to our spouses and relatives “in the flesh.”

“Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life, you have the words of everlasting life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
