Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The first reading tells about the settlement or establishment of our Lord. The establishment and settlement of peace and rest from the enemies. The prophet Nathan says to David “ Go ahead and do it, for the LORD is with you.
Here. God Almighty assure His presence and assistance to his beloved son David. This is what Lord promises: I will make your name great.. I will provide a place for my people... and they will never be disturbed,... I will give you rest from all the enemies..
Here , we have the declaration of the Lord that He himself will establish a house for us.... , He will raise up the offspring to succeed.. and he will establish his Kingdom. The LORD will be our father and we will be His children. And the kingdom will endure for ever and the throne will be established forever.
This is what the Almighty Lord says about the plan and promises which He want to realize and establish.
Second reading also refers about the establishment of God. “ Now to him who is able to establish you in accordance with my gospel, the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past, but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God, so that all the Gentiles might come to the obedience that comes from faith- to the only wise God be glory forever.. through Jesus Christ..!
Establishment- to be in accordance with the Gospel, Establishment- in keeping with the revelation of the mystery, revealed and made known through the prophetic writings . Establishment - to bring all the Gentiles to obedience that come from faith... Establishment- to give glory only to the wise God, through Jesus Christ..
The Gospel tells about the settlement and establishment of Holy Spirit on Virgin Mary for the incarnation of Jesus Christ. God pre-announces through the Angel Gabriel How he will establish His kingdom through Jesus Christ.. Angel says to her: “ Don’t be afraid, Mary. You have found favour with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the most High.. The Lord will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendents forever; his kingdom will never end..!
How will it be..? How it will be happened..?
Explains... the Angel Gabriel..: The Holy Spirit will come upon you...and the power of the Most high will overshadow you..!
Here, Almighty Lord explains his divine will and how we have to respond to his divine plan and fulfil his divine will for the establishment of the salvation of the mankind.
Let us respond as Virgin Mary has done.... Let us full fill as Mother Mary has fulfilled saying: May your word to me be fulfilled...!
Let us open and offer our hearts for the incarnation of the Word of God..! Repeating the same word of our Lady: May your word to me be fulfilled.
