Monday of the Fourth Week of Advent ‘a’

Interesting thing happened to Zechariah -- he became mute because he doubted the power of God. The Angel Gabriel told him: “now you will be speechless and unable to talk until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words, which will be fulfilled at their proper time.” See, Zechariah was a priest, and the gospel says that “he was righteous in the eyes of God.” As a priest ministering in the temple, he must have preached and taught often. But now Zechariah is speechless, he can’t talk, he can only pray and listen. A great lesson of humility. But this is also a lesson for all of us. Maybe God wants to tell us that if we have doubts in our faith, we should remain silent and not spread those doubts on to others. We all have doubts and sometimes we question our faith. However, we should use this time to pray more and ask God to talk to us; we should listen and not speak. Just like with Zechariah, one day all the doubts will be forgotten, and God will explain to us everything.
