Words are very important. They say a lot about a person when they are uttered. Words can build up a person or a nation. On the other hand, it can destroy or annihilate a person’s dignity or a whole community. St. James says it all when he notes, The tongue is placed among our members as a world of iniquity. It stains the whole body, sets on fire the cycle of nature and is itself set on fire by hell. – James 3:5b – 6. Right at the beginning of creation, we see the effectiveness of the word of God. The bible tells us that, “In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said, Let there be light and there was light – Gen. 1:1-3. The importance of the word of God cannot be over emphasised. It is very powerful and gives life. Jesus also adds his voice to the importance of the word of God when he says, Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfil. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished – Matt.5:17-18. It is against this back drop that the authors have taken upon themselves to share these reflections on the word of God. The Word of God: A lamp to our feet is collections of reflections on Sunday readings and solemnities and feasts from cycle or year A. This book is volume II, to The Word of God: A Guide to our spiritual Journey towards Eternal Life I Heaven It is the prayer of the authors that this book will be useful for priests/pastors, seminarians, Sunday school teachers, all who are engaged in Evangelisation and individual Christians especially in this year of Faith.
