DG BookGospel: Lk 1:67-79
Zechariah, filled with the Holy Spirit, sang this canticle: “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has come and redeemed his people.
In the house of David his servant, he has raised up for us a victorious Savior; as he promised through his prophets of old, salvation from


our enemies and from the hand of our foes. He has shown mercy to our fathers; and remembered his holy Covenant, the oath he swore
to Abraham, our father, to deliver us from the enemy, that we might serve him fearlessly, as a holy and righteous people, all the days of our lives. And you,
my child, shall be called Prophet of the Most High, for you shall go before the Lord, to prepare the way for him, and to enable his people to know of their salvation,
when he comes to forgive their sins. This is the work of the mercy of our God, who comes from on high, as a rising sun, shining on those who live in darkness and
in the shadow of death, and guiding our feet into the way of peace.”

 

Reflection:

Zechariah is one of those little ones
who are nameless and anonymous. They would
not even merit a second glance in a crowd. But he is
one among the many who hopes for the fulfillment
of God’s promise. He dedicates his entire life in
looking forward to the day of the Lord. And when he
is blessed to see the baby who will later on be the
Christ, he sings his song of praise and gratitude to
God who is ever faithful to His promise. But not all of
us is as lucky as Zechariah. For sure many others have
waited like him before. God operates in God’s
time and not according to our expectations. The
story of Zechariah however assures us that even if
what we are waiting for does not happen in our
life time. It will surely come as the dawn comes
every morning. For God’s words are true and God
remembers.
