LECTIO NOTEBOOK

Jesus is the way to the Father because he has traveled the way ahead of us. God decided that the incarnation of his Son should come about by means of a woman –born of a woman,” St Paul says (Gal 4:4)-in order that, by assuming our nature, he might be able to traverse the same way, learn the limits, the weakness, the conditioning to which we are subject: Although he was a son he learned obedience from what he suffered (Heb 5:8), that he might better understand us and leave us an example as to how we were to comport ourselves.

In his turn, Jesus personally passing through all the ages of human life, could indicate in each one of them, with his own example, the way we should behave, such that we,looking to him, might know how to conduct ourselves in a manner pleasing to the Father.
