Sample text

The beauty of her heart, her spirit, given, consecrated to God, radiated the fullness of the Holy Spirit living within her, shining through her eyes, her words, her body. Her being was whole and holy. 41 42 THE BEGINNINGS Her bod� a temple of the living God, even more so when the Word became flesh within her. Joseph could not doubt the grace within her nor her fidelity when she conceived. Mary had possibly told him about the message of Gabriel and the child. Joseph knew that this grace was a gift and a mystery of which he had had no part.

This man did not walk or strut about like a general or a politician seeking votes. He was gentle and walked humbly; his whole being spoke of lowliness. Yet in him was the beauty and the youthfulness of the bridegroom (he was barely thirty years old), the joyfulness of the love:r:, THE BEGINNIN GS the seriousness too of the one seeking the bride with a wounded heart. He had the strength and the certitude of one who is sent, knowing he is the Chosen One, the Beloved of God. We know little of his early life, only that he was born in Bethlehem, conceived through the power of the Spirit in the womb of Mary (Lk 1 ), a young woman of Nazareth.

Thus, he is pushed aside, criticized, hated. The leaders want to kill him. He disturbs many, as we shall see later. He came unto his own and his own received him not. Humanity seems more prepared to live in conflict, JESUS behind barriers and defense mechanisms, in a world of oppression, fear, and death, than to change and to receive a new love. Human beings seem to be more at ease proving themselves, fighting with others, living in rivalry and competition to gain power and admiration. It is as if there is a powerful world of darkness and anguish in each person, in each group, both a fear of death and an attraction to death that prevent people from being open to this love.
