Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
The invitation went out indicating clearly that all things were ready (implying that even the wedding garments would be provided); but the king was wroth when those who were invited made light of it, and when one came in not having on a wedding garment. Therefore let us take the invitation with utmost seriousness. All things are ready: Christ has been sacrificed for our sins, has reconciled us to God, has provided us with baptismal faith, has done all things well. Dare we wear our own garments? Dare we tread on his grace? Let us, rather, live as Christians utterly taken with the greatness of this gift, an invitation to his Feast (his royal Supper) where all things are ready. Sermon for Michaelmas II.
