Incarnation/"in-storing"

In God, in the Trinity, the second Person is both the Son and the Word, the Word in which the Father expresses Himself in total. He expresses all that He is in the One. The Word replies in the same way – with love, which is the Holy Spirit. This is the Trinity – the action that happens in God, inside the Trinity, in the relation between the Three of Them. And this is the biggest mystery of God Himself, but which was revealed to us.

But it is not the end, yet. In the relation between the Trinity the Son is the Word, the only Word of the Father. But He Incarnates, He becomes a man, He enters our story, so the Word starts to sound in time, in history. He remains Himself – the infinite richness of the Word of the Father, and at the same time He starts to exist in our world, He becomes a story, a multitude of words that follow one after another, in time which is our natural environment and the material for our stories.

But this is not the end, yet. This Word comes to us, people who live in time, who live their lives, history, which we tell others but also to ourselves. The Word enters it - chaos, time – He enters it to save it, change it in Himself and to give unity. And to make us words as well, so we could live with Him and in Him and become words of God’s love in our chaotic stories, to become the words that God told about us and to us when He created us. To be words of love for ourselves and for the others…

To be children in the Son and words in the Word.
