My reflection is from Living Faith:
Immediately his mouth was opened, his tongue freed, and he spoke blessing God. Luke 1:64
“Today’s gospel continues the story of the birth of John the Baptist. Once John (‘gift of God’) was named, Zechariah’s speech was restored and he blessed God. Others came to believe and to discover the miracles, the blessings and gifts of God in their own lives.
So, too, with us. Miracles may come to us in both the small moments of life and in the big events. But we need eyes to see and our hearts to accept that they are real and witness to the power and love of God in our lives. Then we bless God and tell others what God has done for us. Convinced that God’s love is all around us and walks the streets in our neighborhoods, let us commemorate the divine splashes of grace in our lives, in our every day miracles.
Oh God, open my eyes and heart to bless you for the countless miracles in my life.” Sr. Bridget Haase, O.S.U
Let us ask God to open our eyes so we can see the miracles that are around us.?
