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

O Emmanuel – O God with Us

O Emmanuel, God with us, may we be ever more aware of your presence with us.

O Emmanuel, God with us, may we be ever more aware of your presence with us.

O Emmanuel, our King and Lawgiver, the Expected of the nations and the Savior of them all, O come and save us, O Lord our God

-source of translation unknown

O Emmanuel, Come!

O Emmanuel, Come!

On the Second Day of Christmas

From the Christmas Card of the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael to you:

God’s infinite love has come to us.
God chose to become human
to teach us to live
in trust, in hope, and in love.
