The Power of a Greeting
Sunday December 19 2021 IV of Advent

Dear brothers and sisters, every time I read the passage from the Gospel of Luke that we're going to listen to on Sunday December 19, I am fill with wonder by the fact that a greeting was enough for Mary to make both John and Elizabeth jump for joy.

Mary teaches us that the more we allow our hearts to be purified by the Holy Spirit, the more we are full of God, who fills of saving power, even our simplest gestures such as a gaze, a smile, a caress, a greeting, a gesture of solidarity ...

What a revolution can Christians trigger in the hearts of their brothers and sisters, especially of those who are most fragile, abandoned, forgotten and made almost invisible by human indifference, through their usual, simple daily gestures which, "empowered" by the love of God, are capable of transforming loneliness into communion, despair into hope, sadness into joy .
