Thought for the Day: Earlier in December, I was reading one of Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations and there Rohr paraphrased the medieval mystic Meister Eckhart (1260–1327):
“We are all meant to give birth to God.” As a man who has taken a vow of celibacy, I will never know what it is like to physically give birth, nor have I ever held the hand of a woman I love in labor—neither sister nor friend. However, I have experienced the birth of Christ in the world many times throughout my life—in big ways and small, sometimes through grand gestures, but more often through simple acts of patience, love, and mercy. To incarnate the Christ is to live out the Gospel with our lives, as faithfully and fearlessly as a woman in labor who holds nothing back in order to bring new life into the world.
Prayer: Through my life, Holy God, may the gift of Christ be born into the world. Amen.
