Advent and Reform
Stephen White of Catholic University reflects on the crisis of 2018 in light of the Advent season.
“Christian realism isn’t naivete; it’s the farthest thing from it. And (in another of his surprisingly outlandish schemes) the Lord has chosen to depend upon our free cooperation for the building up of the Kingdom. But if this season of expectation reminds us of anything, it should remind us that, left to our own devices, our own wisdom, we are without hope.”
