The bearer of good news

August 5, 2016 6:00 am

“See, upon the mountains there advances the bearer of good news,  announcing peace! Celebrate your feasts, O Judah, fulfill your vows!” (NA 2: 1) 

Too often we can meet the opposite—the bearer of bad news—rumors, gossip or whispers about others; “the bearer of good news, announcing peace” is something absolutely different. “Announcing peace” brings hope and joy, makes us happy and causes us to expect all the best from the future, but not losing contact with reality, though the manner is not always as we expect. We can expect good because we are God’s children, and He takes the best care of us—like the “persecuted for the sake of righteousness,” who finally won the Kingdom of heaven.

“Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness; for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.” (Gospel Acclamation)
