Artist Ansgar Holmberg’s images invite a transformation from the traditional O Antiphons into the context of evolutionary cosmology. Poetry by Joan Mitchell, CSJ, complements these images celebrating the incarnation of God as one of us in Jesus.
The greatest mystery of being human is our freedom. Freedom is our greatest gift as well as our darkest. This mystery is at the heart of Advent. When we gaze into the depths of our own possibilities it makes us dizzy. It has been said that the masses of humanity are afraid of our freedom. Advent is, therefore, a great gift and a necessary opportunity to look into what it means for us to be human and how we are using our freedom.
