More detailsAthanasius (c. 300 – 373) was born in Alexandria, Egypt and in 328 A.D., became Bishop of Alexandria. He rejected any compromise with regard to the Arian theories. His affirmation that has rightly become famous that the Word of God “was made man so that we might be made God; and he manifested himself through a body so that we might receive the idea of the unseen Father; and he endured the insolence of men that we might inherit immortality.”

God delights in us!

Lectio

Sing to the LORD a new song
of praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel be glad in their maker,
let the children of Zion rejoice in their king.

 

Let them praise his name in the festive dance,
let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.
For the LORD loves his people,
and he adorns the lowly with victory.

 

Let the faithful exult in glory;
let them sing for joy upon their couches.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats.
This is the glory of all his faithful. Alleluia. (Ps 149)
 

Contemplatio: 

“We are precious. God delights in us. We are precious. God walks with us.”
