Advent Reflections  


As we enter the season of Advent, the Center of Contemplative Living will share weekly reflections by Father Thomas Keating, taken from his book, The Mystery of Christ.


A new reflection will be available on each Sunday during Advent. We hope they will help you learn more about Father Keating's teachings and provide you with inspiration, no matter where you are on the spiritual jouney.

Below is an excerpt from her book, The Emergent Christ:


"What took place in the life of Jesus must take place in our lives as well if creation is to move toward completion and transformation in God. Healing divisions and forming relationships that promote greater unity are sources of God's gracious presence emerging from within the history of the cosmos.


Jesus marks a new direction in evolution toward integrated being, healthy relationships and healing presence, all of which contribute to the act of a new future. As the wellspring of divine love emerges from within, Jesus shows us what it means to be a human person and the way to deepen our humanity toward the fullness of life.


His disciples recognized him as the Christ, the annointed One (Mk 8:27), the One who will bring about a new future, a new creation, and who has already done so in our present age. The Christ emerges in Jesus, and the humanity of Jesus shows us what the Christ looks like; his humanity is our humanity, and his life is our life. What took place in Jesus' life must take place in ours as well if the fullness of Christ is to come to be."
