ícone The most illustrious Visitor

What do we do when the visit of someone important in our country is announced: a political or religious leader, a leader in science, an artist?

Everyone gets ready: the television, spoken and print media highlights their best reporters, photographers, editors for full coverage. The authorities of the country schedule the expected date and welcome the honorable visitor with all the honors.

They offer presents, take him to historical places, make speeches, among other things, extolling the figure, his work.

The people get ready for the reception at the airport, waiting for the delegation to pass through the streets, carrying flags, flowers or just waving, all in an indisputable demonstration of how much that person is being welcomed into the country.

And, while his stay is prolonged, the media and the people are in the surroundings of where he is staying, waiting for a wave, a quick exit to the balcony, the opportunity for a photo, a handshake.

These are busy days. And, when the visitor returns to his country of origin, everyone who got photos, a handshake, a souvenir of any kind thrown by him, at some opportunity, show their friends, post on the social networks. It is an achievement, a joy that will be remembered over and over again.

That will be told and retold because the person fells honored to have been so close, at that moment of the speech, of the passage, of the blessing… It will be showen, year after year: I was with him. I was part of the party. I heard his speech, live. He waved at me.

On distant days, in a convulsed land, one night was of great grandeur.

The stars shone with greater intensity, and at some point, a great peace hung over the entire planet.

A star appeared in the skies, different, bigger and brighter than any star. A conglomerate of united Spirits.

A heavenly choir chanted the song of hope in the ears of those who had ears to hear.

And shepherds left their flock in the field… And wise men from the East left their countries… to visit a Boy.

He was the most Excellent King, the Planetary Governor, the Solar King.

He had abandoned the stars, temporarily, to be with His sheep, Heavenly Shepherd who was elected.

Such an important visitor, however, marking His passage through Earth with acts and words never performed and never spoken, has not yet been recognized by many.

He bequeathed the greatest message of all times: Love one another.

When will we realize that the perfect Being, unique in His essence, has visited the Earth? He came to His own, offered His love and waits, with arms wide open for us to approach Him.

His stay on our planet lasted a little more than three decades and was recorded by the wit of a special reporter, who wrote: So God loved the world,  that he gave him his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish, but have eternal life.

His biography, condensed by four people, in different dates and styles, has been translated into almost all languages: dead languages, living languages.

Who among us has already discovered His existence, teaching and adopted Him as a Model and Guide, recognizing in Him the Master and Lord Jesus?
