I have been back in my home town of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Christmas Eve has been busy. There were no confessions here last tonight, but last night there were hoards. This morning I drove over to a nearby parish … Continue reading
The first prayer of the Mass set the stage for our active participation in Communion. Though expressed in exalted language, it conveyed an attitude of humility before the creation of man in GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s image, the Eternal WordÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s self-emptying in the Incarnation, and the possibility of our transformation both in the Eucharist to be received in the course of the sacred mysteries this day and in the happiness of heaven to come. In the second prayer, before the Eucharistic Prayer and consecration, we recognized how we sinners have need to appease God and how the God made Man, Jesus Christ was the source both of reconciliation and also of the very Mass we are participating in, the perfect form of worship renewing our completed reconciliation. In this final prayer we put book ends around our grasp of todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s meaning. We were able to partake of Communion and actively participate in Mass first and foremost because of our divine regeneration in baptism, deepened in a good reception of the Blessed Sacrament in Mass. At the same time, we see how our rebirth in the life of the Trinity in baptism aims ultimately at eternal life and our ongoing transformation in heaven. The Ã¢â‚¬Å“just asÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ so tooÃ¢â‚¬Â structure of the prayer shows us how the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Savior of the world born todayÃ¢â‚¬Â is the fulcrum both of all the ages of the world, born as He was in the Ã¢â‚¬Å“fullness of timeÃ¢â‚¬Â, but also of our own lives as individuals. All of the prayers today are connected by the theme of the transformation of manÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s human nature from his sinful state to a state of glory in the transforming assumption of our human nature by Second Person of the Trinity who, once born, is Jesus Christ Ã¢â‚¬â€œ our brother in our humanity while remaining our God in His divinity.
