The Power Of The Word~ March 10th.

Is this sort of thinking Christian Theology in its most essential and practical form? Or is it the bastardization of traditional Christian thought?

“The only thing that separates man from God, is the belief that man is separate from God.” ~Fr. Thomas Keating

“What good is it to me

if this eternal birth of the divine Son

takes place unceasingly

but does not take place

within myself?


what good is it to me

if Mary is full of grace

and if I am not also full of grace?

What good is it to me

for the creator to give birth to his/her 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 God

is begotten

in us.”

~from Meditations With Meister Eckhart by Matthew Fox
