The humanity of Jesus

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to live your new life with Jesus. May the Risen One give you strength to always be strong in the trials of life and to be faithful and persevering in prayer, because Jesus saved you by His wounds and by His Resurrection gave you new life. Pray, little children, and do not lose hope. May joy and peace be in your hearts and [may you] witness the joy that you are mine. I am with you and love you all with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (April 25, 2018)

Our Lady wants us to have a new life with Jesus. But how can we live a new life with Jesus? What does a new life with Jesus look like?

I believe it is our prayer life with Jesus that will change all the other aspects of our lives. Jesus, in His humanity, has brought the new life to us. He has imbued our human lives with His divinity. And through his humanity, He shows us our new life.

Fr. Jacque Philippe writes extensively about prayer. Let me quote him on Jesus’ gift to us in His humanity. It is very beautiful:

The humanity of Jesus is the primordial sacrament through which the Divinity makes itself accessible to human beings.
As creatures of flesh and blood, we need the support of material things in order to attain to spiritual realities. God knows this, and it is what explains the whole mystery of the Incarnation. We need to see, to touch, to feel. Jesus Christ’s visible, physical humanity is the expression of God’s wonderful condescension toward us. Knowing what we are made of, he gives us the possibility of reaching divine things in a human way, touching what is divine by human means. Spirit has become flesh. Jesus is the way to God for us. St. Philip asked Jesus, “Lord show us the Father, and we will be satisfied,” and Jesus answered, “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father” (Jn 14:8-9)
There is a great and very beautiful mystery here. The humanity of Jesus in all its aspects, even those that are apparently humblest and least important, is for us an immense space for communion with God. Every aspect of his humanity, each of his characteristics, even the smallest and most hidden, each of his words, deeds, and gestures, every stage of his life from his conception in Mary’s womb to his Ascension, brings us into communion with God the Father if we receive it in faith. By exploring his humanity like a piece of land that belongs to us, going through it like a book written especially for us, making it our own in faith and love, we grow steadily in communion with the inaccessible, unfathomable mystery of God.

A Christian’s mental prayer will then always be based on a certain relationship with our Savior’s humanity. (Jacque Philippe. Time for God. Scepter Publishers. 2008. P.58)

How do we live our new life with Jesus? By knowing His human life, from start to finish. By meditating on His human life every day. By cherishing His life with us on earth, knowing it to be the way to the Father. And one of the ways to do this is to pray the mysteries of the Rosary! Our Lady’s Rosary brings us close to her Son’s life on earth, and then leads us into heaven!

May we investigate, meditate, cherish and adore Jesus’ life with us on earth, and allow Him to show us the way to the Father!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
