God Comes to Us

Lk. 1:46-56 The newspapers tell of the great things the rich do; they tell of how our Lt. Governor is increasing his fortune–always an emphasis upon money, and the “generosity” of those with money. But the Gospel tells us that Jesus comes to the poor, because the rich have all they need, they have security, and hope in the future. It is in the poor that Jesus comes, in John, Sue, Sarah, Cameron–of the Tenderloin, Haight, and Polk–who have only the clothes on their bodies that Jesus comes. I have little compared to many people but I serve 500 people a week–it is in the poor that we meet Jesus, not in the rich and powerful–for they have all they need (at least they think they do). Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
