Gospel (Matthew 1:18-25)

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul the Apostle to the Ephesians, (3:1: 13)
Your blessings Father
Brothers and sisters, This is the reason that I Paul am a prisoner for Christ Jesus for
the sake of you Gentiles for surely you have already heard of the commission of
Gods grace that was given me for you, and how the mystery was made known to me
by revelation, as I wrote above in a few words, a reading of which will enable you to
perceive my understanding of the mystery of Christ. In former generations this mystery
was not made known to humankind, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles
and prophets by the Spirit: that is, the Gentiles have become fellow heirs, members of
the same body, and sharers in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel. Of this
gospel I have become a servant according to the gift of Gods grace that was given me
by the working of his power. Although I am the very least of all the saints, this grace
was given to me to bring to the Gentiles the news of the boundless riches of Christ, and
to make everyone see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who
created all things; so that through the church the wisdom of God in its rich variety might
now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was in
accordance with the eternal purpose that he has carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord, in
whom we have access to God in boldness and confidence through faith in him. I pray
therefore that you may not lose heart over my sufferings for you; they are your glory.
Praise be to God always.

Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took


place in this way. When his mother Mary
had been engaged to Joseph, but before
they lived together, she was found to be
with child from the Holy Spirit. Her
husband Joseph, being a righteous man
and unwilling to expose her to public
disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly.
But just when he had resolved to do this,
an angel of the Lord appeared to him in
a dream and said, Joseph, son of
David, do not be afraid to take Mary as
your wife, for the child conceived in her
is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a
son, and you are to name him Jesus, for
he will save his people from their sins.
All this took place to fulfill what had been
spoken by the Lord through the prophet:
Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear
a son, and they shall name him
Emmanuel, which means, God is with
us. When Joseph awoke from sleep, he
did as the angel of the Lord commanded
him; he took her as his wife, but had no
marital relations with her until she had
borne a son; and he named him Jesus.
This is the truth. Peace be with you.

Meditation

Christmas Schedule 2014-2015

"When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord
commanded him"
Joseph of Nazareth obeyed the voice that he heard in his dream immediately. His decisive action to take Mary as his wife was full
of faith. But how did he know that the voice was from Heaven?
What made him trust this voice? Not every dream is divine. How
do we discern? We know that he was a "righteous" man. This
means that he was a prayerful man who had a deep relationship
with God. He must have learned that Charity is the heart of the
Law and this is why he did not want to expose Mary to public
disgrace. His deep understanding goes beyond the legalities of
the Law. He was ready to ignore the tradition in order to be
charitable to Mary. This alone is a sign of a deep spiritual life and
a humble soul. He knew the simple ways of the Lord from
Scripture. His holy silence is a proof that he meditated the Word
of God. Through this meditation he must have learned how to
discern the heavenly manifestations. Unlike Zechariah, he obeyed
immediately, no questions asked. This dream was an answer to
his prayers. His faithful response was a step forward in his
"sharing" in the mystery of the Incarnation. Today Joseph is
inviting us to go deeper in our relationship with God, to be silent
and listen to God speak in our hearts and guide us to fulfill our
mission in life; otherwise we will miss the greatest call.

All this took place to fulfill what had been

Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear

borne a son; and he named him Jesus.
This is the truth. Peace be with you.

love in our daily life. Through the Holy Spirit you gather us in one
church as a community of faith in the image of the Holy Family of
Nazareth to love you, adore you and give you thanks. We entrust
you with the entire endeavor of the construction of our new church,
the one in flesh and the one in stone. Through the example of
Jesus Christ, make us generous donors and strong builders of your
Kingdom, so that we can be united, and hand in hand, build in
Toronto, a new and holy church, a temple of your presence among
us and a home for each of our families. We ask you this, through
the intercession of the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Lebanon, and all
the saints. Amen.

Huitime Dimanche
Dieu le Pre tout puissant, depuis la cration de lunivers tu guides
lhumanit vers toi avec bienveillance et amour. En Jsus, ton fils,
tu nous appelles tre frres et surs, pour te servir et tmoigner
de ton amour dans nos vies quotidiennes. Par lEsprit Saint tu nous
rassembles en glise, tu fais de nous une communaut de foi
limage de la Sainte Famille de Nazareth pour taimer, tadorer et te
rendre grce. Nous te confions toutes nos dmarches pour le
projet de la construction de notre nouvelle glise, celle de la chair
et de la pierre. A lexemple de Jsus-Christ, fais de nous des
donateurs gnreux et des btisseurs forts de ton Royaume, afin
que nous puissions tre solidaires et, mains en mains, nous
btissions, Toronto, une glise nouvelle et sainte, temple de ta
prsence parmi nous et maison pour chacune de nos familles.
Nous te le demandons par lintercession de la Vierge Marie, Notre
Dame du Liban et de tous les saints. Amen
