Reflection 2.22.13


Would that I have wings
that I could wend my way to Thee,
O Jerusalem, from afar!
I will make my own broken heart
find its way amidst your broken ruins.
I will fall upon my face to the ground,
for I take much delight in your stones
and show favor to your very dust.
The air of your land
is the very life of our soul.

~Yehudah Halevi

Reflection 1.29.13


As for the assembly, there shall be for both you and the resident alien a single statute, a perpetual statute throughout your generations; you and the alien shall be alike before the Lord. You and the alien who resides with you shall have the same law and the same ordinance.

~Numbers 15:15-16

Reflection 1.8.13


How have wise men become such fools as to adore a child, whose age and whose relations’ poverty alike deserve contempt?

They have become fools, that they may be wise. The Spirit has taught them in advance what later the apostle preached, “Let him who would be wise become as a fool, that so he may be wise. For because through wisdom the world in its wisdom could not have knowledge of God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching so save them that believe.” …

… They fall on their faces, they revere Him as King, they worship Him as God. Of a truth He, Who led them hither, has instructed them too; He, Who urged them on by means of the star without, has Himself taught them in their inmost heart.

~Bernard of Clairvaux

Reflection 1.4.13


When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flocks,

The work of Christmas begins:

To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among people,
To make music in the heart.

~Howard Thurman
