Hark, the hearld angels sing…

• With the messages given today, what else are the Medjugorje visionaries, Marija and Jakov, but two herald angels singing in harmony from the same hymn sheet, delivering the wonderful news about the new-born Saviour; just like the angel of the Lord and the heavenly host who pronounced the good news to the shepherds at Bethlehem that was to be shared by the whole people.

The voices are different, but the messages to the two visionaries given by the Mother of Jesus are the same – a call to put aside our business, to open our hearts and make room and time for Jesus, an invitation to come and adore the new-born King. An invitation to peace and reconciliation. “God and sinners reconciled.”

Hark the herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn King!

Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled.”
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim:

“Christ is born in Bethlehem.”

Hark! The herald angels sing

“Glory to the newborn King!”

Peace, Peace, Peace! Be Reconciled! Only Peace. Make you peace with God and among yourselves. June 26, 1981
