The Breath of Life Within Us
by Father Brian J. Soliven on Wednesday February 8, 2023
The worth of every human soul is rooted in Genesis as we hear today in the first reading: "the LORD God formed man out of the clay of the ground and blew into his nostrils the breath of life, and so man became a living being." (Cf. Genesis 2:7) The sin of Adam and Eve destroyed this "breath". Jesus comes to restore it in the most unexpected of ways.
