NOTES AND QUOTE

Third Sunday of Advent

We live in a perpetual Advent. We are always waiting for the messiah to come. The messiah has come, but is not yet fully manifest. The messiah is not fully manifest in each of our souls, not fully manifest in humankind as a whole. This means that just as Christ was born according to the flesh, in Bethlehem of Judah, so must he be born according to the spirit in each of our souls.
(Jean Danielou)

If you have no joy in your religion, there's a leak in your Christianity somewhere.
(Billy Sunday)

The God we know through the bible is a liberating God, a God who destroys myths and alienations, a God who intervenes in history to break down the structures of injustice and who raises up prophets to point the way to justice and mercy. He is the God who frees slaves (Exodus), who makes empires fall and lifts up the oppressed (Magnificat).
(Josephine Cupit)
