God's "dream" Sunday, December 22, IV of Advent Dear brothers and sisters, Pope Francis to the young people, gathered for WYD in Panama last January, said that what united them, despite the fact that the nationality, customs, traditions and languages were different, was the sharing of the same dream: the Dream of God! And the passage from the Holy Gospel of Matthew that we will hear next Sunday December 22, which presents us Joseph, the Bridegroom of Mary, who dreams about the "Dream" of God makes us understand it better, and reveals to us, at the same time, the "right style" to make it ours! First of all, the great "Sign" of the Virgin who conceives the baby Jesus, already prophesied, in some way, by the Prophet Isaiah centuries earlier, reminds us that we are not the result of chance but that God, in Christ, dreamed us and wanted us his adoptive children. through the Holy Spirit, even before we existed. Dear brothers and sisters, God forbid that, due to our pride, we fall, like King Ahaz, in the horrible diabolical deception of rejecting the revealing "sign" of the "Dream", deluding ourselves that we can realize our life without or, even , against God ... Like Joseph, instead, a just man, let God, who "got out of himself" in the Son, transform our lives into an "Amazing Dream" with the unheard beauty and purity of his Love! I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Holy Christmas and a happy New Year. God bless you always!
