“The word of the Lord created the heavens and the breath of his lips, the stars. He spoke and all the earth was created, and he ordered all things existed.” Sl 32,2

God said (...) and so we did, "from these biblical expressions theological reflection developed an entire study to understand and make known, at least in part, on how it operates and manifests the divine Word, expressed in Hebrew term for "dabar" (word, speech, speech, thing, commandment, action, event, story, story) that precisely combines action and word, alternating between what is done and the story of what is done. prophetic Within the word of the Lord "dabar YHWH" or in Greek "logos kyriou" means more than the spoken word, resembling an event, ie word into action. Hence it is considered the Word of God as dynamic and creative word, word is that mandate and effective instruction. operative word that refreshes the soul and in human history by performing the Holy Spirit all things.

With the philosophy of language studies from the Modern Age came to the realization that the simple word goes beyond mere human utterance, ie not only says something, but also expresses who said and challenges the listener. So, when we pay attention to the functions of the human word and better understand in more depth the scope of action of the divine Word in our lives. In fact, this is one of the ways to make known the Word of God with another dynamic catechesis. The Word of God, expressed by the term "dabar" has the dual function of proclaiming God's works and explain the mystery of these same works, many of them narrated in the Bible. Well, considering that the simple human words can impact the heart that hears does not become difficult to raise a little thought and try not realize how much size for us to challenge us in every liturgical celebration, every Holy Mass the Divine Word. There, in that real and effective action where Temples are made into real, authentic places in the theological word of the Lord, are being challenged. More than draw our attention, the Word appeals to our hearts, inviting us, claiming space, seeking passage, exhorts us, creates link to us, binds us, demands a response fruit of a free membership on our part, or encourages while waiting for our "yes". Without a doubt it is the liturgy that the Word of God became flesh and dwells among us, now ambo at the time of the proclamation of the readings and the Gospel. At this time, it's part of the whole celebration intimately connected to the other "moments", so only one thing, God refreshes His Word in our day and makes us share in his mystery of love; deifies us, lifts us by grace part of their nature, their intimacy, the fruits of his mysteries and there operates slowly healing of our wounded freedom and always so in need of love.

This divine Word is Jesus, the Eternal Word of the Father, the only word spoken from the mouth of God, through which and in which the Lord pronounced our name forever calling us, us and all creation into existence. This word entered our history and let himself so humbly express the limits of our language, because wanted to speak our language, so we were witnesses and transmitters these same words. Is it even to His own words in the Gospel calls us to be with Him withdrawn slightly apart, to then serve Him.
