Advent… is above all the “sacrament” of the Presence of God in the world and in time in His Incarnate Word, in His Kingdom, above all His presence in our own lives as our Savior.

It is necessaria praesentia Christi, the necessity of our finding Christ the Savior here and now among us.

Thomas Merton
Seasons of Celebration, p. 64

  1. I found him yesterday, hidden, he made his Presence felt in the gentleness, patience and good humour of the church flower ladies and cleaners, all working together .. Not one cross word .. But smiles and helping hands, a tiny candle glow yes, but unmistakably Christ.
