25 December 2019 – The Nativity of the Lord Year A

Jesus, today Your light shines on us: help me understand the mystery of Your birth so that I too may be a gift of salvation for the world.

     The Missionary Family Saint Nicodemus is a dawning Catholic missionary community, including a clerical religious institution - already constituted as public association of believers, in sight to be erect by law in diocesan religious institute, from the Bishop of Luebo (Democratic Republic of Congo) - and, as I plan, also a female religious institution and an churchly association. The inspiration of the birth of the Community, has sprung from the consideration of the life of Saint Nicodemus Abate on the Kellerana mountain, that is found in the territory of Mammola (Reggio Calabria), in Italy. This correspondent Site Web, intends to develop a function of information and cultural and religious formation, also to comply to one of the works of apostolat foreseen by the statutes of the same Community.

The Gospel of Sunday

25 December 2019 – The Nativity of the Lord – Year A


The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John (Jn 1:1-5, 9-14) - Shorter version


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.
What came to be through him was life,
and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.
He was in the world,
and the world came to be through him,
but the world did not know him.
He came to what was his own,
but his own people did not accept him.

But to those who did accept him
he gave power to become children of God,
to those who believe in his name,
who were born not by natural generation
nor by human choice nor by a man's decision
but of God.
And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory as of the Father's only Son,
full of grace and truth.

.

Jesus comes among us to make us partakers of his Holy Spirit:
Let us welcome him and live in his love and in his strength.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2020

Prayer to Saint John the Baptist
***
O glorious Saint John Baptist,
teacher of truth, prayer and penitence,

in the Holy Spirit,
has to the center the communion with the Father and with the brothers,
