“…do what pleases him” (1 J 3:22)
Preparing surprise for somebody gives us so much joy. Causing someone to smile is worth every effort. Think about what we do for our children waiting for the signs of The Wise Men midnight visit at our homes.
And, what’s more, we are able to do what pleases God himself. Our small hearts, our gestures full of weakness could please HIM!!! What a dignity we receive. Abyssus abyssum invocat (Latin) – The depth is calling the depth. Our deep limitations can to reach incomprehensible God.
Today we would like to visit Child Jesus with our gifts, like The Wise Man, and “do what pleases Him”. It could be a phone call to an old friend, it could be a small sign of liking to our neighbor, it could be several minutes with the Bible, or any other thing with this intention – to do what pleases Him.
The Wise Kings “departed for their country by another way” (Mt 2:12). Probably we can expect that the same could happen to us: we could find another way back home – the way that He chose – “He went around all of Galilee …curing every disease and illness among the people” (Mt 4:23).
“Amen, I say to you: That you who left all and followed me will receive a hundredfold and posses eternal life” (Communion Antiphon)
