Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
Suicide rates have spiked, and despair can be found everywhere. But when Christ comes in glory, all the families of the earth shall mourn. Even those who loved their families, and their nostalgia, and the heart-warming things of this life, because they did not love Jesus, the Jesus who came to give his life and say, Take up your cross. Jesus is the only name whereby we must be saved, and all the rest shall be burned as stubble on that terrible Day. So John says Repent, and the preacher repeats it: repent. But lift up your heads, for Christ knows you, and you love him, for he loves you. And you see the buds of the trees, and know that summer is near; that is, you have a little of the eternal joy already now, and you receive him even now, in the Gospel and in the Blessed Sacrament. Receive him joyfully now, and you shall surely be ready for that Day, which shall surely come. Sermon for Advent II.
