Humbly submit your will to God (thy Will be done) and consecrate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God. 
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
What came to be through him was life,
and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.

A man named John was sent from God.
He came for testimony, to testify to the light, 
so that all might believe through him.
He was not the light,
but came to testify to the light.
The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.

He was in the world,
and the world came to be through him,
but the world did not know him.
He came to what was his own,
but his own people did not accept him.

But to those who did accept him
he gave power to become children of God, 
to those who believe in his name, 
who were born not by natural generation 
nor by human choice nor by a man’s decision 
but of God.

And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory as of the Father’s only-begotten Son,
full of grace and truth.

John testified to him and cried out, saying, 
“This was he of whom I said, 
‘The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me 
because he existed before me.’”
From his fullness we have all received,
grace in place of grace,
because while the law was given through Moses, 
grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
No one has ever seen God.
The only-begotten Son, God, who is at the Father’s side, 
has revealed him.  JN 1:1-18

Today, John begins his Gospel with the words that begin the Old Testament.  He is linking the Old and New Covenant (Testament) together through Jesus Christ.  John does a great job of teaching us who Jesus Christ is.  The perfect reflection of God the Father (Word) is Jesus Christ (in the Flesh) who dwells among us.  This is why the Incarnation is an important doctrine-the Word made Flesh.  Jesus is full of grace and Truth.  He is the Word made Flesh.  He is the splendor of the Father.  He is God’s only begotten Son.  He is the new Temple, the new Tabernacle, the new Covenant.  He came to reveal God to us because “No one has ever seen God”.  Today, He stays with us in our tabernacles, monstrances, in the Eucharist which we can receive every day.  
We have an amazing God.  ”He loves us so much that He sent His only Son to save us not condemn us.” JN 3:16  
He knew he created us body and soul and therefore came into the Flesh to be a model of holiness for us, to reveal God’s love to us, and to save us from our sin.  He gave us a reason to live not just exist.  Most importantly, Fr. Barron says, “We killed God and He came back with love and mercy.”  Who is this Man?  He is God and God’s love is stronger than anything in the world.  God’s love is the driving force behind all good, Truth, salvation, light, glory, joy, peace, eternity.  God’s greatest desire is to bring you home to His heavenly kingdom that He prepared for you.  This desire is greater than your own desire for heaven which is what your heart is longing for.  There is no happiness here on earth because there is a much greater place that our heart’s are longing for, heaven home. -Peter Kreeft  Why do we cling on to this earth where we have heartache and pain, suffering, death, sin, boredom, murder, ignorance, and a constant search for our identity?  In heaven, we will know exactly who we are which brings peace and puts everything into order.  We will be home where every desire of the heart is fulfilled.  We will be full of joy and any suffering in the world will look like nothing but a cough due cold.  Our wills will be completely connected to God’s will and this brings us complete bliss.  We must allow God to work in our lives, submit.  Let go of your pride and be vulnerable.  Love.

Today’s challenge: Read something about the Incarnation and heaven, our hearts greatest desire.  Let go and let God.  Pray, hope, and don’t worry!-Padre Pio
