‘She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins.'Now all this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: Look! the virgin is with child and will give birth to a son whom they will call ‘Immanuel,’ a name which means 'God-is-with-us' (Mtt.1.21-23).
“Something which has existed since the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our own eyes, which we have watched and touched with our own hands, THE WORD OF LIFE -- this is our theme.
That life was made visible; we saw it and are giving our testimony, declaring to you the eternal life, which was present to the Father and has been revealed to us. We are declaring to you what we have seen and heard, so that you too may share our life. Our life is shared with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. We are writing this to you so that our joy may be complete,”

How does God want me to react to this confusion, to this madness–to my orderly world getting out of control? How did I react? Certainly my confusion revealed how little I knew about the inner workings of a computer. Surprisingly, my problem was solved when I abandoned what seemed to me to be reasonable solutions. Only when I tried what seemed to me to be totally illogical did my computer begin to perform correctly!
Our next posting will be on 9th Nov.

Isidore Clarke O.P.
P.S. Peter has just told me that recently one of these tiny whistling frogs hopped into his glass of rum. Had it evolved with a taste for the golden nectar? If Peter had swallowed it, he would have had a frog in his throat and would have whistled whenever he spoke. That would have made for unusual sermons!
The next posting will on 21st September when Isidore will reflect on Meeting God in his 'Babel Moment.'
