If we keep faithful to the discipline of this Advent,
a grace that we do not expect will seize us
and we will find ourselves plunged into the most beautiful paradoxes:
we cannot presume we will recognize Him.
keeps us spiritually hungry for the Bread of Life, and
Interrupting our sleep for prayer
helps our hearts find rest in the Prince of Peace, and
Pondering His teaching with our hearts
humbles our intellect and baptizes our imagination in glory:
So too setting aside our daily routine for the sake of our neighbor
aids us in our quest
For the One who has set aside everything for us.
