For 1 December 2009, Tuesday of 1st Advent, based on Luke 10:21-24
At that same hour Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, â€œI thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.â€ Then turning to the disciples, Jesus said to them privately, â€œBlessed are the eyes that see what you see! For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.â€
