Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas

We are all meant to be mothers of God. What good is it to me if this eternal birth of the divine Son takes place unceasingly, but does not take place within myself? And, what good is it to me if Mary is full of grace if I am not also full of grace? What good is it to me for the Creator to give birth to his Son if I do not also give birth to him in my time and my culture? This, then, is the fullness of time: When the Son of Man is begotten in us.

– Meister Eckhart, 1260-1328, German Dominican Mystic

Christmas Eve – Receiving God


It is good for a person to receive God
Into himself or herself
And I call this receptivity the work of a virgin.

But it is better
When God becomes fruitful within a person.
For becoming fruitful as a result of a gift is the
Only gratitude for the gift.

I call such a person a wife
And in this sense the term wife is the noblest
Term we can give the soul,
It is far nobler than virgin.

Every day
Such a person bears fruit a hundred times
Or a thousand times
Or countless times
Giving birth and becoming fruitful
Out of the most noble foundation of all.

Tend only to this birth in you
And you will find there
All goodness and all consolation,
All delight,
All being and truth.

~ Meister Eckhart, OP

Wednesday of Hope – In the Stillness of the Quiet

In the stillness of the quiet, if we listen, we can hear the whisper of the heart giving strength to weakness, courage to fear, hope to despair.

– Howard Thurman
