Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
Pride is a deadly sin, for it was the devil's downfall, and Eve's when she took the fruit, and Adam's when he took as well. And pride is the cause of so much evil and terror and sorrow and pain. So marvelously, Christ comes in humility to undo the devil and pride. He is born in poverty and he now flees to Egypt by night to escape the terror of Herod. And his humility continues to his death by crucifixion, but so he defeats the devil and rises the third day. So let us learn to rejoice in our humiliations and sorrows, even as the sorrowing mothers of Bethlehem had to learn, for when we are humbled, then pride is done away and faith flourishes. Sermon for Christmas II.
