Scripture Struck @ Lk 2:41-52
Jesus Grew in Spirit
The Father sent his divine Son as a Holy Child, as the Santo Nino. He was the Promised-fulfilled; the presence of God in our midst. He is God personified.
But he was not alone to fend for himself. Jesus had to learn how to be human. He grew up in a simple yet faith-filled family. Joseph gave it stability and security, while Mary immersed him in the stories and traditions of his people.
The family atmosphere of Nazareth was nourishing. His parents nurtured both Jesus’ mind and spirit. As his mind grew wiser, his capacity for spiritual experience deepened. He found strong connections with his heavenly Father both at home and in the Temple.
Our experience of God will set the tenor of our life. It will greatly define our lifestyle. Pope Francis affirmed: ‘take care of your spiritual life, your relationship with God, because this is the backbone of everything we do and everything we are.’ 😊
