Gospel for the Tuesday of the 1st Week of Advent

Luke 10:21-24

Summary: Jesus praised the Father for revealing truths to the humble, contrasting them with the wise and learned. He spoke of the unique Father-Son knowledge and their mutual revelation. To His disciples, He declared them blessed for witnessing what prophets and kings had longed to see and hear but never did.

Hidden and Revealed

Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.

All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”

Turning to the disciples in private he said, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I say to you, 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.”
