Happy New Year! As we wish our family mem- bers, loved ones, colleagues and friends across the world, what should we be saying. Can we go beyond the Happy New Year phrase? If we look to the first reading from today we will have an answer. It says that Yahweh asked Moses for Aaron and his sons, to bless the people with these words, “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gra- cious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
”’What a beautiful blessing! The Lord bless you and keep you - Not only should the Lord bless you but keep you in the shadow of His presence, protection and love as in Psalm 91. As you remain in His presence, His face has to shine on you. When the Father’s face shines on us darkness is dispelled and the lightness and light of God begin to fill our being. When His face shines on us, we receive a clarity we would have been otherwise searching for. When the Lord’s face shines on us, we are filled with His love and we are delivered of our darkness. To be gracious is to be kind and courteous especially to someone of a lower status. We know that we are nobody’s but God’s gracious- ness and love make us feel like sons and daughters of the Most High.
