Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
A multitude of angels shouted for joy, as it is written in the book of Job, and now, behold, this multitude appears again, singing Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. For it is significant enough when one angel appears to announce the birth of Christ, but now the multitude announces its meaning: here is the rebirth of the world, and for the first time since the world fell, the restoration of peace, that peace that passes understanding, that is, the declaration of God's good will toward men, through this savior. See, O Christian, whoever you are, who lament you sin and sorrow, and who grieve any of the earth's sorrows and fallenness, God is at peace with you now, and his good pleasure has come to you at last. Rejoice this glad Christmas Day! Christmas Eve Mass (in its entirety), and its video is here.
