USCCB Podcast of the Readings:
O Leader of the House of Israel,
giver of the Law to Moses on Sinai:
come to rescue us with your mighty power!
In our contemporary World , we like things instant or immediate or ready made. The online and E commerce revolution has increased the door to door service. All the Banking or dealings or products are available online instantly, just a click and it is done.
The Bible and Churches provide all the teachings online and live. Masses are telecasted online and many people who are not able to physically attend Church, participate the Eucharistic celebration online. I remember one of my 90 years old Charasmatic Aunt watches EWTN Channel and participates the Eucharist online and during the Communion distribution goes near the TV and receives the Body and Blood of Christ in faith.Many of my relatives found funny and called her sarcastic but for me it was a great example of faith in her age and circumstance.
Our God has made our provision from before the foundation of the Earth and heaven to live in us and with us in each and every moment of our life. We need not switch channels or click to order God’s presence but he lives in our body, blood, breath, mind, emotions, Spirit . God has united with us and we are no more two but one body, mind and Spirit.
Christianity is a way of life which has already reached it’s destination or goal and won the victory. This victory must be celebrated with the victorious Lord in each and every action in faith , love and hope. We possess the Spirit of God who is the giver of life and maker of heaven and Earth. A Christian has already reached the destination and must hold the Lord tight in our hands and walk in his steps like a small child walks with the father. Once we get this art of walking in faith , love and hope, we must teach others to walk with him through our examples.
So our God is Emmanuel’ much ahead of time and space . when we think of him he is there to help us and support us. This kind of Technology or Telepathy neither researched nor will be researched by any Worldly Scientists because it can be researched only by faith, love and hope in Emmanuel – Jesus who is with us and saves us everywhere,every time and every place and all the time because he is beyond time and space who live with us and in us.
