THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
In today’s Gospel, John the Baptist is inviting us to look at Jesus.
He calls Jesus the "lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world."
We say these words often at mass and today we are invited to meditate on
them more closely. What does it mean? In Jesus’ time, two lambs were
sacrificed in the Temple in Jerusalem each day. It was a ritual that
invoked purity. Jesus will preach a love that is radical for many, in a
world that was, and still is, broken. John refers to Jesus as the lamb
as he knows that if one loves in such a way, they will suffer at the
hands of unjust systems and institutions.
When we look at the "sins" of our world today—broken relationships,
crisis, can we also see those who, like Jesus, "take away" the sins of
the world? Christ’s love was not passive, he actively challenged systems
that were oppressive and which prevented people from living life to the
full. Whether it be the climate crisis or the homelessness crisis or any
number of issues we face, "look" where Jesus walks and is actively
working to end this suffering. When we hear these words at mass, let us
be reminded of all those who sacrifice much to ease the sufferings of
others. This is Christ, the "lamb of god" ac-tive in our world today.
"The descent into the waters of our spirit, is a journey into the
presence of divinity… all human beings are children of God but not all
live in the awareness that there is "that of God" within them.—W.L.
