Bem-aventurados os mansos, porque eles herdarão a terra; Bem-aventurados os que têm fome e sede de justiça, porque eles serão fartos; Bem-aventurados os misericordiosos, porque eles alcançarão misericórdia; Bem-aventurados os limpos de coração, porque eles verão a Deus; Bem-aventurados os pacificadores, porque eles serão chamados filhos de Deus; Bem-aventurados os que sofrem perseguição por causa da justiça, porque deles é o reino dos céus; Bem-aventurados sois vós, quando vos injuriarem e perseguirem e, mentindo, disserem todo o mal contra vós por minha causa.(Mt.5)

God wants our salvation, sent his son

God wants our salvation, sent his son
We contemplate the Baptism of Jesus Christ in the Jordan River. With a humble attitude he shows us the initial path of Salvation: the acceptance of God as our only Lord.
Christ is the light of the world, Light is the attribute of divinity. “This was the true light, which comes into the world for all” (Jn 1,9). "Whoever follows me ..." - said Jesus - will have the light of life "(Jn 8:12). We Christians are “children of the light” (cf. Eph 5: 8). The light of Christ is carried around the world by his disciples.
Baptism of Jesus - As Christ descends into the water of the Jordan River, as an innocent man who has sinned for us (cf 2Cor 5:21), heaven opens and the Father's voice proclaims him a beloved Son (cf Mt 3:17) , at the same time that the Spirit invests him in the mission that awaited him.
We contemplate his self-revelation at the wedding at Cana, when he turned water into wine. At Mary's request, Jesus begins his journey towards the Salvation of Men by performing his first miracle.
Self-revelation of Jesus at the wedding at Cana - Mystery of light is the beginning of signs in Cana (cf Jn 2: 1-12), when Christ, transforming water into wine, opens the faith of the disciples' hearts thanks to the intervention of Mary, the first among those who believe.
We contemplate the announcement of the Kingdom of God with an invitation to conversion. Jesus invites us to be fully converted to God's laws in search of eternal happiness. The announcement of the Good News brings hope for a better world for all men.
Jesus announces the Kingdom of God with an invitation to conversion - Mystery of light is the preaching with which Jesus announces the advent of the Kingdom of God and invites conversion (cf Mc 1,15), forgiving the sins of those who address him with humble confidence (cf Mc 2,3-1; Lk 7,47s), beginning of the mystery of mercy that he will continue to exercise until the end of the world, especially the reconciliation entrusted to his Church
We contemplate the transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Thus He shows the Apostles and all human beings His true divine essence. His Light guides us to follow the paths of good.Transfiguration of Jesus - The mystery of light par excellence is the transfiguration that, according to tradition, took place on Mount Tabor. The glory of the divinity shines in the face of Christ, while the Father presents him to the ecstatic apostles so that they “hear” him (cf. Lk 9:35) and are willing to live with him the painful moment of passion, in order to arrive with him to the glory of the resurrection and to a life transfigured by the Holy Spirit. We contemplate the institution of the Eucharist. Jesus gives us his own body and blood as spiritual food for our souls. It is the total surrender and the greatest proof of His Love for all mankind. Even though he knew he was going to be betrayed and sacrificed, He gave us a supreme display of His divinity. Institution of the Eucharist - Mystery of light is, in short, the institution of the Eucharist, in which Christ makes himself food with his body and blood under the signs of bread and wine, testifying “to the extreme” his love for humanity (John 13: 1), for whose salvation he will offer himself in sacrifice. There is no greater love, for this reason I love you, I pray for you and I send you a hug.
