Gospel Reading: Luke 2: 1-20
Dear Community of Christians,
if we live in a family or a community language creates the bridge to the other human being. Most of the time, this bridge is built from our everyday language. At the same time language also builds up our personality which has its basis in our spiritual-human constitution. This means the words that make up our language are also a bridge to our higher being. This Higher being is influenced by all our cultural life, prayer and meditation.
What happens when language loses its spiritual quality? Does this affect the ethical and moral content of our character? Has man then lost the access, the bridge to the spiritual world?
When in our Epistle the Creator’s healing word is spoken, draws near, the spiritual world tries to find an opening to the human soul. Is this the attempt of the spiritual world to prevent Christ's language, Christ's word from being lost in the maelstrom of the modern world? This is also connected with the hope of all hierarchies that there will be families and communities in the future who will preserve and keep the Word of Christ alive, kindling the language of the spiritual world in their innermost being.
